Why the Messiah Fallacy Hurts Female Empowerment

I am not hiding in hopes that someone else will take the reins in female empowerment campaigns. I admit to doing that in the past, watching the likes of Gloria Steinem stand up for women and not doing my part. That has changed; I have changed. I am now speaking and writing my views to help lead change.

With the concepts of leadership and female empowerment consistently on my mind, it’s with great interest that I am rereading portions of David Castro’s Genership 1.0: Beyond Leadership Toward Liberating the Creative Soul and discussing his sections on the Messiah Fallacy.

Well, I had a very hard time finding anything in the 40’s or the 50’s. The majority of the female artists back then sang about love which is dreamy and I love, LOVE.
