Gandhi about women's equality and womens nonviolence


Nonviolence [harmony, peace] is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man. Nonviolence is not the inheritance of cowardice, it is always heroism. Nonviolence is the law of our life.

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others[especially to women and children].

Love and truth are two sides of the same coin [especially at women and children].

If nonviolence is the law of our life, then the future belongs to a woman.

Women should take the lead role (in nonviolence).

Having stood before the wave of pseudoscience that swallowed the West today, and drawing attention to the science of nonviolence, you (women) can become a powerful weapon of peace .... By the will of the Lord, nonviolence in the hands of a woman is more powerful than in the hands of a man.

To defend his honor (woman) is free to choose any means or method that o­nly comes to her mind.

Passive resistance (satyagraha) is the weapon of the strongest. ... This weapon is available primarily to women. ...

Maintaining order in the house is no less important act than to protect it from enemies.

Of all the evils for which the man took responsibility, there is nothing lower, more outrageous and cruel than an insult to the beautiful half of humanity.

          Gandhi's wonderful ideas about equality and nonviolence of women, their peacefulness and priority peacemaking role in society are echo and consonant with the ideas of Helena Roerich, which are represented in the corresponding GHA project. Both sets of these ideas, combined with the ideas of the scientific spheral essence of nonviolence, create a fundamental theoretical ground for the innovative women's movement of nonviolence and harmonious feminism New Women:



         The most important innovative scientific thought is in mutual dependence and mutual confirmation of the nonviolence of women and spherons, harmonious spheral classes of the population. Women, who constitute more than 50% of the population and its spherons, do not give examples of mass violence in history, although they are in constant inequality and injustice. It indirectly confirms the nonviolence and peacefulness of spherons. o­n the other hand, the harmonious nature of spherons is closest to female nature, therefore women, undoubtedly, are the vanguard of nonviolence, peacefulness and harmony of spherons, which Gandhi intuitively guessed without scientific explanations that appeared 70 years after it.

          Additional ideas and sources for the GC women's module will be presented later.
