The Role of Woman Within The Rastafarian Community
The Role of Woman Within The Rastafarian Community
Genesis 2v21, "And Yahweh caused a deep sleep to fall
upon Adam where he separated the woman from Adam."
Rastalogy declares that on that day, God created man in
his image and likeness.  
"He created them, male and female."
The command, 'be fruitful and multiply', establishes the
role of the Woman in the Divine plan of JAH.  It shows the
equality of the individual, each as a distinct operation in
God's objective for humanity.  Irrespective of the biological
difference from man.  Woman has a responsibility to the
well-being of humanity.
Rastalogy recogizes the important position a Woman
occupies in the area of parental obligation to the family
because she is the person who has to take care of the
home
and make decisions dealing with the well being of the
children and other things.
In the tenets of Rastalogy, this makes her equal to Man.
Woman has a very important position in the annals of
Rastafarianism and Rastalogy; the reason being; it was the
visit of the Queen of Sheba of Ethiopia to King Solomon of
Jerusalem which established the present Dynasty of
Emperor Haile Selassie I through Prince Menelik I, Son of
King Solomon and Queen of Sheba.  This makes woman
revered in Ethiopia.
Daughter of Zion{Rastawoman} enjoys a very high degree
of honor in the Rastafarian community.  In 1955 Emperor
Haile Selassie I, our Divine Leader, reformed the Ethiopian
Constitution and gave Woman the authority, equal to man,
to the extent Woman could become President and hold any
important position in the government.
