Women and the World In the Year 2112

It is amazing what women have accomplished in the last century.  Presidents 57, 58, 82, 82, 84, and 90 have all been women.  Our first African-American president was Barak Obama in 2008.  Since then, our presidents have been both men and women and have been from so many different ethnic and racial backgrounds.  The same is true for most of the industrialized countries in the world.

Mo'Ne Davis had a wonderful career as a Major League pitcher.  She won the Cy Young award in 2025, 26, and 27.  She after her retirement, she was a pitching coach for the Mets in New York. Shondra Miller became the first place kicker in the NFL.  Of course, Davis and Miller opened the flood gates of female participation in formerly male dominated sports.  It wasn't until 2037, after Amanda Fincham became president of the Major League Baseball Union, that female athletes finally earned the same salary as their male counterparts.

Finally, the Cleveland Indians changed their name to the Cleveland Clodhoppers, while the Kansas City Chiefs became the Kansas City Monarchs, as an homage to the best Negro League team in baseball.

it's hard to believe that women only earned 76 cents for every dollar earned by a man in 2015.  Currently, in 2112, women out-earn men by 5 cents on the dollar.  The salary advantage given to women is attributed to the female ability to work better in teams, their willingness to do any work, their organization skills and the way they have incorporated both family and work life efficiently.  Since 2084, men have increasingly taken over child-rearing and housekeeping chores and sociologists and psychologists report an increase in parental and child wellbeing.  In fact, society could not be operating more efficiently.

Since the seminal Harvard/Smith collaborative study on effective leadership, showing that traditional female traits of cooperation, nurturing and willingness to take on all tasks regardless of whether it was formally considered "menial," women have headed most multi-national corporations.  Those women who pioneered running large corporations, while being tentative at first, developed a business model that rewarded patience, kindness and recognition of hard work, thereby increasing productivity of businesses in general.

President L'Tonya Johnson's last State of the Union address spoke of an increase in empathy and cooperation between businesses and nations.  With the downturn in crime and war, and the upturn in the economies of the world, hunger and poverty have been almost eliminated.

However, discrimination is still a problem.  The old discrimination laws are most commonly applied to anti-male sentiments in both industry and international relations.  President Johnson hopes to eliminate anti-male discrimination during her term.  While men have started all wars throughout history, President Johnson and other world leaders believe that, through concerted global policy, male aggression can be contained.  Through research and study, gun laws have been radically changed throughout the last century, lawmakers are experimenting with allowing qualified women to own handguns for protection.  Congress is concerned about returning to the violent crime rates of the 21st Century.  This issue is hotly debated and it will be interesting to see what happens.

Since lawmakers made college educations available to all, the trend of women comprising most college graduates continues.  Congress and lawmakers in general are considering both financial and other incentives so that more males will pursue college and even post-graduate educations.  Since the marked reduction of defense spending across the world, lawmakers hope that males will again seek jobs in science and math.  Since the early 22nd Century, when teacher training to encourage girls in the sciences became such an overwhelming success, teachers realize they must redouble their efforts to keep boys interested in science and math, and not just in homemaking and cooking.

Professors Eliza Schmidt and Andorra Schickenheim successfully eliminated 98% of climate change and the world is on track to be human-climate-change free for the next millennium.  The anti-nuclear weapon research of Professor Melanie Smithson and Yura Mengovi revolutionized world fear of annihilation.  All countries of the world voluntarily destroyed all of their nuclear weapons and vowed to refrain from producing any more weapons of mass destruction.

Things have changed so much in the last 100 years, it will be interesting to see what happens in the next century.
