Equal Partners

By Roland Ezri

"Women are the backbone of all societies. They do a substantial part of the work, and play a major role in raising the future generation yet they are largely powerless. The decisions that count are made by men and foisted upon women."


One of the most vexing problems of the last 25 years is the fact that despite the great progress made by Western women, they occupy very few top political and corporate posts. In politics, only 13% of the members of the House of Representatives are women. In the corporate world, only 13% of corporate officers are women. How then can women share in the leadership and be able to shape the society that they live in?

What women have accomplished so far is the first stage only. There is a need for a new approach, a second stage, in which women take matters into their own hands. Women possess awesome power which they themselves have fought long and hard to obtain, but which they have used to a limited extent only. They have 50% of the vote, and 85% of all retail purchases are made by them. This book urges women to use their power to effect major changes in their lives.

In stage two, we need to consider three questions:

  1. Why should women seek political and economic equality?
  2. What is standing in their way (in other words, why haven’t they done so decades ago)?
  3. How to go about it?

This book proposes that a group of dedicated women and men (referred to as the E.P. – Equal Partners – team) begin the process, and carry on for as long as it takes until full equality between the genders is achieved. This process can start in any country and spread from there.
