Women are not a homogeneous group.
As with many of our identity markers, there is more difference within, that out
and yes..we can disappoint ourselves and others, and are just as capable as hating each other, and being duplicitous, as much as men (if not more)
but.. this picture's pretty sweet nonetheless
Yes folks.. its that day of the year
Happy International Womens Day!
Now I know you're cool woman of substance right?.. No? .. never mind, don't fret.. we can be cool and shallow sometimes too every now and then , okay?
Now here are a few of my choice of cool women, today..
Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
She's a Londoner like me you know
Best runway model ever (IMO) hands down
Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma
Very powerful lady
Very cool lady
Very rich lady ( who looks much younger than her age!)
Now ahead of Oprah in the Forbes rich list
(Shh.. don't tell anyone.. but I think there's money in that there oil.. hmm and fashion)
In closing, a woman, wife, a mother, sister, daughter, a girlfriend, is not code for Slave
Even if, or when we may be complicit, and enslave ourselves
Don't abuse women!
Have a great day!
This was in the news today..
I suspect that most abusers are still not known to the police. I suspect that most women who experience domestic violence suffer in silence
