Reason to Believe

Feminism is not about making women strong. We already are. It’s about believing in our strength and changing how the world perceives it. I’m not going out on a limb when I say that most US women friends in my age group are so indoctrinated in patriarchy that they are blind to the inequalities. However, our belief system will shift if we focus on what women have accomplished and what it took to get here. 

I Hear You

What? I can’t hear you! Hearing, or I should say, “not hearing” is a condition equally frustrating to those afflicted and those who aren’t. Last month, President Biden’s executive order lowered the price of hearing aids. Hearing loss sneaks up on us. If people would just stop whispering. Speak up! We want to yell at people.

It was the conundrum facing suffrage activists as they did their best to convince men to share the vote with them. Voting rights was the first step towards political influence were other issues; children's education and general social welfare could be tackled.
