I am manning (sic!) no barricades for (wom)an this morning. Putting the woman in semi-punctuated handcuffs is just typical of what I meant in my Facebook Status Lament today. I am even given to speaking in cliches, alas. Our language is a patriarchal conspiracy! And of course those of you well-read in your feminist philosophy out there will know this as you peruse your womanspeak texts.
So, today as a 61 year old feminist I have faith in the mothers of the world. Regardless of the colour of their skin, their religion etc etc most of them keep on doing the doing that needs the doing and hoping the hoping that needs the hoping and wishing that the young lives that they are entrusted with will keep safe for the longest time ever.
My personal International Women's Day effort is my own return to womanblogging. My Magpie's Nest is up and awake and sqwarking and warbling and gabbling once again and I am in the midst of creating 'One Woolley Arsenal' at a separate TypePad address, a knitfest full of yarns!!!!
Wishing you ALL a THOUGHTFUL International Women's Day 2014.
