The Battle of the Sexes has been going on since we inhabited this planet and it will continue, but hopefully in a more constructive fashion than previously. The internet is pioneering a more balanced environment, where access is available without discrimination, as it increasingly permeates into our wider culture.

How will the empowerment of women change us as a species? I have no idea outside of my absolute conviction that our endless conflicts with each other will subside dramatically. A more caring, feminine influence will broaden our attention beyond current short-term goals that are now threatening our planetary resources and very survival.

Bringing us into greater balance as a species can only improve our overall evolution, by fully understanding and empowering that part of us which has been subdued for far too long and making a crucial contribution to living life as a global society.

It is a huge challenge, for both genders, in tackling an issue that is at the very core of the dilemmas we now face. However, I am reassured by the wisdom of Albert Einstein that, in bringing new thinking to the catastrophic problems traditional short-term thinking is now presenting us with, we can take greater control of our future survival.
