The Power of Women in 2022

Coming to the end of 2022

Facing another year nearly going to be part of the past, we still might say we had a year where lots of attention was given to certain men, but where women had to prove more than men, that they “could stand their man”.

At this site and also on our other sites, we do hope we could find a balance and give the necessary women some attention. Also for the matter of reblogging, we came across some women’s writings which deserved our attention and found you should get to know them too.

Just look at our previous postings where we mentioned and took some texts from the Jewish Young Professional (JYP), one of those female bloggers who regularly know to bring a smile to our face, with her playful take on the world and finely crafted poetry laced with some Jewish humour.

Besides JYP, a lot of women in 2022 passed the review. You could find in our reblogs, writings from the following women: Shambhavi Yadav, Barbara Leonhard, Cindy Georgakas, Saania Sparkle, Leona Cicone, Shalini Garg, Hola Luna, Maya Angelou, Urvashi The Little Mermaid, Sohair, Jane Park, Nethmie Dehigama, Deanna, Melissa from Working Zillennial, Susan ReimerBrenda Davis Harsham, Noor Putteneers, Sofie Terryn, Ines Udelnow, Beverley Doreen Wright, an Ukrainian refugee, Kyrian Lyndon, Christa NoteboomJoyce O’Day, Christine McNeill-Matteso, and D from Introverted Thoughts. So there are a whole bunch of them that we were allowed to introduce alongside the male writers.

Regarding “following authors”, we have to say that we do not always get updates on the publications of people we follow. For instance, Cindy Barton Knoke has been out of the picture this year, so we have missed her very nice prints. It seems there has gone something wrong in the WordPress system that they did not yet manage to solve after one year. In any case, she is still one of our favoured bloggers, whose site Cindy Knoke we still recommend as one not to miss next year.

Furthermore, we could not ignore Angela Merkel as a remarkable woman of the 2020-2022s. But for 2022, there were some women whose positions and/or statements more than deserved our attention.

The Power of Women

The American magazine Forbes announced its picks for the world’s most powerful women of 2022. Meet the three trailblazers who topped the list.

1. Ursula von der Leyen

The first female president of the European Commission, she earned the top spot largely for her unwavering support of Ukraine following the Russian invasion in February. Learn what other gender barriers von der Leyen has broken.

2. Christine Lagarde

This year Lagarde, the first woman to head the European Central Bank, drew praise for her handling of various economic challenges, especially rising inflation and concerns about a worldwide recession. What other crises has she faced in her pioneering career? (To be honest: we would not place her in our top listing of most important people for 2022.)

3. Kamala Harris

U.S. Vice President Harris made news in 2022 with her advocacy of voting rights and reproductive freedom. Both were major issues of the midterms, which saw her Democratic colleagues perform better than expected.

  1. Such an amazing tribute to the powerful contributions of positive women. I am humbled to be included, and so full of sorrow that WP continues to unfollow people from each other without our knowledge or consent. They acknowledge they do this, but will not change it. Still your focus is so beautiful and important. Thank you sincerely. And please keep on doing what you do.
