The NASUWT is a member of several women's organizations, including the Charter for Women, EAVES, Maternity Action, the White Ribbon Campaign, the National Council of Women of Great Britain, and the National Alliance of Women's Organizations. The NASUWT promotes gender equality within schools and opposes educational discrimination against girls.
Nasuwt (or Nastawt) was a legendary queen of ancient Armenia. She is best known for her role in bringing about the Armenian Empire through her marriage to King Argus. After Argus' death, she became a goddess herself. The name Nasuwt is still used among Armenians to refer to female deities.
In Greek mythology, Nasuwa was one of the daughters of the king of Ethiopia. She was said to be so beautiful that her father placed her on a pedestal beside his bed so he could look at her forever. One day, she was abducted by Liriope, who wanted to marry her husband, a prince of Troy. However, when she arrived in Troy, she found another man in bed with her mother. Distraught, she killed her parents and fled back to Ethiopia. There she lived as a hermit until she was found by a king who had many children but no daughter. He named her Princess Nasuwa and she became the mother of the nation of Ethiopia.
A Rastafarian woman is a queen who must adhere to different norms than women in "Babylonian" or Western culture. Some of the requirements include no make-up, no short skirts, and no usage of chemicals in their hair.
Rastafari believe that all men are equal, and as such, they don't distinguish between male and female; therefore, all people are equally valuable and should be treated with respect.
They also believe that God is fully human and as such, they regard themselves as a part of the human family. They feel that since humans were created in God's image, then it follows that God would have certain attributes that are common to all humans. One of these is creativity, so Rastafarians create music, art, and literature.
Additionally, they believe that knowledge is power and thus education is important. Since Rastafarians can't be priests in the traditional Catholic sense, they have spiritual leaders known as "Imani." The Imani may be elected by the community, but once chosen, they are never replaced.
Finally, they believe that life is worth living and death is not to be feared but rather seen as an awakening into another dimension where one finds eternal peace.
Ashanti is a matrilineal civilization in which the female is the line of lineage. Women are considered the source of life and prosperity, and they play an important role in decisions made by their families. Men are considered secondary to women, who hold greater power than their male counterparts.
Asante women are strong willed, proud, and independent. They enjoy making choices for themselves and have a desire to learn new things all the time. Although they are not given authority over men, they can send them away if they want to. The Asante culture values women's opinions and allows them to speak up when there is something that needs to be said.
They are also responsible for looking after home and family. When their husbands or sons go to war, they take their place helping with farming. During peacetime, they make sure there is food on the table by going out hunting or gathering water from nearby streams. In addition, they prepare meals for their families and keep houses clean. All in all, Asante women are involved in everything related to their family affairs.
It is common for Asante women to wear their hair in dreadlocks because it is thought to protect them from evil spirits.
