Despite much resistance, feminism has wide-reaching influence.
Aquarius (ca 2,400 CE-- 4,600 CE) Shekhinah:

The Golden Age of the Goddess begins and takes root, transforming all social interactings at every level.

Ecological responsibility is the new ethos.

A new approach to the raising of children encourages compassion and caring in both girls and boys.

The practises of a Gift Economy gradually replaces the masculated marketplace.

So be it!

Towanda!!

Shekhinah:

I do love the idea of adding relevant Goddess and Woman oriented
material to our timeline. A lot more can be added to the future ones
too! What visions do sisters have for our Goddess-and-Woman-loving
future world? Here are some others that come to my mind:

All gender variations and loving sexual preferences accepted and
integrated

No class system; everyone is equal and all needs are met

Creativity, love, friendship and compassion are highly valued.

As in the ancient native way, wealth is measured by how much one has
given away, not by how much one has acquired.

Everyone works at things they love to do, and for every task that
needs doing there is someone who loves to do it. If there are any
tasks that no one loves, these can be done technologically.

Fewer big cities and more villages with lots of nature in, around and
between. Remaining cities are ecologically sound, beautiful, centers
of culture, science, education, and the manufacture of needed goods.
Lots of parks and fountains, statuary and art everywhere. Libraries,
museums, schools. Centers of healing and the study of healing;
though there are many of these sprinkled everywhere.

Temples of Love. Temples of Healing. Temples of Magic. Temples of
Learning. Priestesses preside in them.

Humans evolve to the point that most are psychic and communications
telepathic.

Transport is by hovercraft, solar-craft, or "beaming over" as in
Startrek. This means most of the concrete can be removed and plants
and habitats can grow and breathe again.

Rain forests become centers for the production of useful foods and
medicines instead of being cut down to make way for cattle feed or
tract housing. As a result the forests grow back and flourish, as do
wilderness areas around the world.

The ozone layer is mended. It is documented in the news, on the
internet, in many writings and films; a momentous turning point in
earth and human herstory.

Some plastic "baggies" and other packaging materials are made to
go "poof" and dissolve into the air harmlessly after a period of
use. Their molecular substance is beneficial to the atmosphere and
helps to maintain its purity and balance.

Extinct species return as habitats are restored.

Goddess shrines and temples everywhere. Lots of work for priestesses!

hehe!

Any more future visions? These are so important for helping to
manifest the world of our desires!

Passing the rattle to...

Brainstormily,
Shekhinah

All Crones shall be revered and sought after for their arcane
and glorious wisdom!

Eve:
Joy is the usual attitude, not an occasional flash. Everyone lives in comfort and peace and joy.

All children are revered by all adults, cared for and watched over by everyone and no child ever goes hungry or in need.

Nobody is ever homeless.

Every neighborhood will have a Moonhouse retreat with a lovely herb garden and an herbalist where women may go for peace, ritual, storytelling, quiet music, comfort food, soothing massage and pampering their bodies in all ways when they are flowing. They will not be expected go work or go about their daily business unless they want to, instead they will be honored as procreators.

We see one another through eyes of love and honor.

Callista Hellene:
People realize their connection, physically and
psychically to the environment; we co-create the
best weather conditions with Mother Earth to
yeild excellent crops to feed everyone, and also
for many a fun day at the beach/hiking/camping.

Animals realize we are not a crazy species, and
wild animals come up to us unafraid. We share
childcare duties with our animal friends.

Men let go of their fear of femininity and
understand the 'masculine' ideal that was beaten
into them was just to get them to join the army
and be efficient killing machines for a few
powerhungry jerks.

Men embrace their sisters, and wonder why the
heck they didn't see sooner what awesome people
women are when it was as plain as day!

We never fear each other again because we realize
we are all One, part of the human family, and
that the universe is a safe place. We are safe
to learn and grow and evolve and be creative. We
learn finally to lighten up and enjoy the
beautiful gift that is life.
