Some ideas, like our calendar, or like women being business leaders, need repeating:
The previous year, 2016, has shown us that the entire world is in need of change, in particular in the ways that we see, or do not see, one another. Cultural dominance, as shown by the use of the Gregorian Calendar, is something that frames the world-view of all of us who grow up within Western/European culture. To build a more inclusive and kinder world, we must learn to reframe our ways of thinking, change our perspectives.
One way of doing this is by watching and creating more shows which show women and other traditionally marginalized groups in positions of authority, such as Turkish businesswoman Güler Sabancı on Sihirli Annem (2003).
Another way of doing this is to begin using a calendar that is inclusive of all humanity: The Holocene Calendar (El calendario Holoceno.)

1.) Think of some ways that you believe we could change our cultural ways of thinking.
2.) Share them with us in the comments, here, please.
3.) Write a book, blog post or tweet that uses those ideas, tells a good story, and makes a difference. I’m working on that through my historical fantasy #WiP, #WhoByFireIWill. If you write a book, once published, please consider donating to your local public library.
