Women in leading public office
This comes as the 52nd and first woman US Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi takes centrestage, with approval of hearings for impeachment proceedings against US President Donald Trump, in what she declares is an effort to uphold the Constitution of the USA.
Public Policy Actions & Cultural Relations
Among elements featured is my musings about a girl, Love Child of Colonial Contempt from my article Clandestine Confessions.
It explores the links between family issues and public policy. It highlights how governance processes perpetuate prejudice, biases and exclusionary policies to depreciate diversity, social inclusion, and harmony and how such practices are passed on and down over time.
Defenders of the Constitution
As women assume more and more positions of leadership, it aims to alert and educate women leaders, as the bearers of culture, how negative cultural behaviour may also be transmitted through actions in office, especially as those action may have been initiated through traditional patriarchal outlooks. In the arena of cultural conservation, leaders need to be reoriented into identifying negative and positive traditions and choosing and crafting programmes and action in the interest of social progress and advancement.
This is an excerpt of my interview on the Presidency: Women, Leadership and Power. The full interview can be seen in this link here.
Constitutions may embed gender bias and prejudices, that leaders, including women perpetuate through their actions that lean on traditions that negate women and their value to society. Click on video below.
Culture Sensitive Education for leaders
There is much need for leaders to access culture sensitive education, which can take many forms. Ask for seminar or workshop customade to your organisation, industry or interest.
My book, I the Sky & Me the Sea, The Adventures of Munnie Butterfly and Danny Dragonfly, the first in a series on Festival Fables has been critically acclaimed in its role for culture sensitive education of children from ages 3 to 103, including leaders in high office.
One Canadian newspaper juxtaposed a caricature of US President Donald Trump’s position on immigrants with the cover of I the Sky & Me the Sea, recommending its musicalmix and general approach to cultural-sensitive education from preschool. Find it on Kris Rampersad Amazon Author page.
