Hello to you all, a brand new day in a brand new year!!!!!! Cheers. Unfortunately most good intentions of 2017 were killed in action. That’s how it goes. So before we start on our new year we salute 2017, with her successes and failures. And apologize to her that again we did not entirely managed to keep it peaceful everywhere, that we are no step closer to a cleaner world and that we are still chasing glitters and glamours. That leaves somethings to wish for this year!
Womans rights, it seems so naturally and absolutely evident. Do we, the free and independent woman, take it for granted? To be honest, taking myself as example, sometimes I do. It feels absolutely normal if I get equal treatment, if I do not have to worry about an (innocent) pad on the buttocks. Or serious powerplay between the sexes (or I’am not aware of it) . I do not encounter these complicated and belittling situations. Why? I am not sure but I grew up with the state of mind that woman suppose to be equal to men. I also grew up with the reality check that even though my mother and grandmothers fought for there right to be equal, in fact their world was not ready yet.
But my world is. And I consider myself lucky. I must say, independency and self esteem starts with your self and it need to be guarded and protected at al means.
I am a privileged woman, I see that. So my sisterhood oblige me to stand up for sisters in lesser situations. And I speak, when ever I can, On behalf of them and their future too.
The Royal We, Artwearness, share a workspace with Vrouwen platform caree, Zwolle. They are a serious workforce to empower woman. Young woman, vulnerable woman and isolated woman. Dutch woman who suffered aggression and oppression, Woman without perspective….And this is our very emancipated Holland! Leave alone all places in the world were woman has no rights and are demolished even by there own spouses.
Our workspace is a real suffragette community, all women!! And they make me aware of the need of woman issue awareness every day!
Of all people, woman, are probably still the largest group of discriminated, misused, abused, mutilated and attacked ones.
I like to introduce the following hash-tack to all of our sisters: #Powerflower.
