The following letter is a call-to-action written by my friend, Steve Beckow, asking each individual citizen of the world to:
-declare that all violence against women must stop
-set a personal deadline that it will happen by 01 Jan 2015
-change your thinking through visualization and self-talk
-support this effort in any way that speaks to you

By the power vested in me as a free and sovereign citizen of Planet Earth, I declare that gender persecution will end on this planet by January 1, 2015.
There is no basis in the universal laws, in human nature or in any other context of life for the notion that women are somehow subservient to men. There is no basis in any context that women can be mistreated. This condition of unworkability exists solely because we allow it. It leads to a structural hierarchy based on gender inequality. And it now needs to end, everywhere and forever. We tolerate gender persecution because we don’t think we have solutions that will resolve, dissolve, and eradicate it. We don’t think that we can actually make a global difference. But we do and we can. I’m certain of it and I declare it.
We on this planet are global brothers and sisters, unhindered by national, religious or ethnic differences which no longer serve us. I call on all people, wherever they are on the globe, to come together and rid the planet of this condition which keeps our sisters in extremity.
On my own authority and say-so, I declare that unworkable conditions like this not only have no place on Planet Earth, but that we have the resources, capabilities and will, right now, to have them be gone. And they will be gone through our own committed speaking and acting.
To coordinate our efforts, we need a society-wide deadline. I declare that our work will be complete by January 1, 2015.
To those who say it cannot be done by that date, I say that it can and it will. By that date, according to globally-accepted measurements that we will generate, we will see the complete eradication of gender persecution on Earth out of our own committed action.
Wherever we can, and in some instances we may not be able to, I invite us to create win/win, global solutions that leave no residue.
I invite us to allow no element of fear to enter our hearts but to think the unthinkable and create the impossible.
I invite us to end the longest war in human history – the war between men and women.
I invite everyone to take up this goal or support it. I invite those who see flaws in our plans, not to oppose us, but to join us and add their expertise to correct what they see and ensure that our vision is realized, by better means.
I invite us to take on our world’s heartache as a sacred promise to the Divine Mother. I ask that we be responsible for it and assume leadership in it to see that our commitments are realized by the deadline we agree to.
I invite everyone on Earth to join me in committing to workability between the genders. Research how it can be achieved. Contribute whatever you can to any credible organizations already at work in the field. Start projects yourself and link them up with others. I ask that this declaration be reposted widely.
Our actions will be like dominoes. These two elements of global unworkability – gender persecution and, with it, gender inequality – cannot endure against such concerted, coordinated and committed action.
This may sound too simple, but is great in consequence. Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth: … that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. I learned a deep respect for one of Goethe’s couplets: Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!
