THE FEMINIZATION OF SOCIETY & SISTERS O SISTERS by Yoko Ono (1972) – for International Women’s Day 8 March 2013

Fri 08 Mar 2013 - Written work

We can change ourselves with feminine intelligence and awareness, into a basically organic, noncompetitive society that is based on love, rather than reasoning. The result will be a society of balance, peace and contentment.
