Accelerate Peace Conference at Stanford University

Sadhvi Bhagawati, Secretary-General of the Global Interfaith WASH Alliance, spoke at the Accelerate Peace conference at Stanford University, organized by United Religions Initiative and the Hoover Institute at Stanford.  The theme was Women’s Empowerment and the Environment. Women are the Earth! Women’s empowerment and environmental protection or not two isolated themes. Women are Mother Earth and Mother Nature. . . Interlinked as One!  The same myth of separation that enables us to rape the earth is the same myth of separation that enables us to rape our mothers, sisters and daughters. Respect for women is respect for the Earth. Justice for women!
