The Womanifesto is the philosophy underpinning the novel
The Womanifesto calls for a positive re-evaluation and adoption of what have traditionally been referred to as Female Values and Perspectives with a corresponding paradigm shift in human affairs.
By this we mean an emphasis on cooperation and community rather than competition and individualism, with society organised to protect its weakest members, namely children and the elderly.
In the present global economic system we are told there is no alternative to production being governed by the Market.
However there can be no production without people and people are created by reproduction.
Therefore whoever controls reproduction controls production and future human society.
This explains why religions and other bastions of male power have worked so hard to regulate and deny female sexuality.
These sad people kill to oppose abortion, fight against birth control and do anything to prevent children getting proper sex education.
The rulers need our children for their wars and as workers, but they don’t want to acknowledge the power of reproduction.
They can’t let the women speak out.
So they denigrate the Feminine and attack women because they’re scared.
When women manage reproduction, the risk posed by overpopulation – probably the biggest challenge facing humanity – will quickly diminish and our species will no longer threaten all other life on the planet.
If women see a future where their children will be working for slave wages or die in wars or starve or die of thirst – if women see this, they will refuse to bring more children into the world.
Why should women give birth to children in a society that abuses most of the people most of the time, a society that lets tens of thousands of kids die each and every day from preventable causes?
Women everywhere are demanding change, and will not be denied. The genie is truly out of the bottle.
The existing order is based on violence or the threat of violence. But as violence creates more violence this is obviously counterproductive.
Women and children suffer most from wars and crime, face sexual assault, domestic violence and constant harassment.
Violence in all its forms must become a thing of the past.
We’ll need new politics for this new society and we’re calling it Lowerarchy.
Everybody knows a hierarchy is a pyramid-like structure with power concentrated at the top. This model worked well for kings, emperors, presidents, prime ministers, warlords and tyrants of every kind, and when allied with military might, has allowed these dictators to dominate the vast majority of people for the last several thousand years.
Hierarchies are part of our heritage, but then so is cannibalism: both have no place in a modern egalitarian society.
Government has developed from the absolute rule of kings and is the means by which the few dominate the many – so is part of the problem not a solution.
Lowerarchy is the opposite of hierarchical organisation.
In the Lowerarchy there will be no need for leaders as there will be no nations to lead. Local people will decide for themselves how to live and manage resources.
Then artificial national boundaries can be dissolved, and with no nation states to defend, armies will become redundant so can safely be disbanded.
Likewise, security services can be dismantled as we would all be on the same side.
The alternative to the above?
Catastrophic overpopulation, continued unfettered competition and the commodification of everything, wholesale destruction of the natural world, mass extinctions, more pollution and greenhouse effects on the climate, a further widening of the gap between the rich and poor, loss of civil liberties, wars over resources, famines and the likely destruction of the species.
It’s time we changed the way we live –
Let’s make the Future Female!
This was missed by most media
Some cities, such as Madrid and Barcelona, turned violet to demand the decriminalization of abortion.
Feminist platforms throughout Spain have held today, for the first time in the country, the Global Day of Action for Access to Safe and Legal Abortion. The festival, which began in Latin America in the 90s, gained special importance on this side of the pond due to the announcement of the Minister of Justice, Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón, of the anti abortion legislation.

After the BBC claimed to be ‘horrified’ at allegations about Jimmy Savile and sex abuse, more women have come forward to add to the controversy.
Yet the media still call this abuser ‘Sir’
According to today’s UK Guardian, two women have come forward with further allegations of sexual abuse by Savile.
The BBC now says it will assist any police investigation.
One alleged victim waived her anonymity to describe how she and a friend were allegedly molested by the Jim’ll Fix It star in the 1970s when they were 14.
Dee Coles told ITV News that she and her friend were made to perform sex acts on Savile in a camper van when they were on holiday in Jersey.
“He didn’t seem like a stranger. He was on our telly every Saturday night. It was exciting being with someone on TV,” said Coles.
“But I felt immense panic as soon as the door locked. Afterwards, it was shame.”
Unbelievably, Michael Grade told Channel 4 News on Tuesday night that he heard rumours about Savile’s conduct while he was boss of BBC 1, but said any suggestion of a cover-up was ”ludicrous’.
Grade said he had fleetingly heard rumours, claiming: “There were question marks, certainly.” But he added: “I never heard anything that gave me cause to think we should investigate or do anything about it. There were questions, but the entertainment industry is awash on a sea of rumours.”
But as this Savile bloke had access to children and vulnerable people, Grade’s hand-wringing counts for nothing. If he had heard stuff he should have investigated and not stopped his own journalists from doing so properly.
The reactionary males are scared.
They’re clever enough to see the curve of history (herstory) points to female empowerment but stupid enough to think they can stop this dynamic.
I’m arguing that it’s crucial for women to manage human society or there will be no human society in the very near future.
And the same goes for the climate, oceans, natural world etc etc
News broke today that creepy former Radio 1 deejay and television presenter Jimmy Savile was interviewed under caution by Surrey police in 2007 about sexual assault allegations dating back to the 1970s.
However, the force dropped its 2007 investigation after the Crown Prosecution Service advised that there was insufficient evidence for a prosecution, the force said on Monday.
The development came to light after up to 10 women told a documentary they were assaulted by the Jim’ll Fix It frontman, who died last year.
The supposed ‘lack of evidence’ can be read to mean Savile was rich and connected to powerful figures, as a former BBC presenter says she actually caught him abusing a young girl.
Broadcaster Paul Gambaccini has added to the claims that Savile sexually abused schoolchildren, claiming the star used his charity work and ‘imperial personality’ within show business to prevent his private life being exposed.
Speaking ahead of a forthcoming ITV documentary that claims Savile abused schoolgirls during his many years of stardom, Gambaccini said his former Radio 1 colleague played tabloid newspapers “like a Stradivarius” in order to keep the abuse secret.
Now the BBC is under pressure to explain why it stopped an investigation by it’s own journalists.
Late last year the BBC decided to drop a Newsnight item investigating allegations of sexual abuse by Savile, who died last October aged 84, leading to accusations the piece was ‘killed’ to spare the Corporation’s reputation. Instead, two tribute programmes celebrating his BBC career were aired.
However, a BBC spokesman said no evidence of any allegations of misconduct had ever been found in its files, so it was “simply not possible for the Corporation to take any further action”.

This is unbelievable…
Police in Poland have launched an investigation after photographs were posted on a school website of 14-year-old children licking whipped cream from the knees of a priest.
The series of pictures show boys and girls, apparently pretending to be cats, approaching the priest, seated in a battered armchair, on all fours.
They then take turns at licking cream from his legs in what the school has described as an “initiation ceremony” for first year pupils at the school in the south-west town of Lubin where the priest is also the director…
“This is very disturbing,” said Marek Michalak, the Polish government’s spokesman on child affairs. “Surely the boundaries of decency and acceptable forms of bodily contact have been exceeded. I’ve ordered an enquiry and demanded an explanation from all relevant authorities…”
But the priest involved, Father Marcin Kozyra, defended the “ceremony”.
“There has never been a complaint from either parents…
