After show chats are almost as great as during the show chats & often that is where new show ideas come to life. Today after our 'Living ON Purpose' show, Elaine & Penn & I were having a conversation about the 'inclusivity' concept of I Am the Western Woman. Elaine mentioned that she had received some feedback in that regard. The feedback came from a wonderful & compassionate woman who feels that stating that 'we are all Western women', meaning EVERYONE, is an unrealistic concept & that women in Westernized culture have a duty to speak out for women in other cultures who we perceive as 'oppressed' in some way or ways. We spoke at some length about this & decided that we needed to do a show on this topic. Approximately 1 hour later, I was walking down a main city street where I live & was approached by a beautiful young woman named Nusaiba. Nusaiba was wearing a hijab (head covering) & chabor (full long sleeve & to the ground robelike garment). She was part of a group of individuals who were peacefully raising awareness about the plight of the citizens of Syria. After a very short conversation with her, I knew she had to be on the show to discuss what the Dalai Lama's quote 'The Western Woman will save the world' means to her.
Shortly thereafter, I was at a festival where a wonderful organization called unlearn (www.unlearn.com) had a display. A synchronistic conversation with a young man, Ahmed, from Lebanon, brought me right back to the topic discussed earlier, this time, from a man's perspective. Needless to say, Ahmed will also be on the show.
THIS, to me, is what the I Am the Western Woman movement is all about, inclusivity, diversity, open-ness, singularity & LOVE....TUNE IN!!
