Bonjour mes amis, et bienvenue à un autre Lundi. . . .why am I saying Howdy peeps and happy Monday in French? BECAUSE I CAN…… 😂😂 It’s Women ‘s History Month and so below are some words by or about women, sentiments by women and men expressed BECAUSE THEY CAN — some quotes reinforce stereotypes, some subvert them.
It’s in what is said but also the “not said” that we learn what it is to be a woman now, how we got to this point, and how to continue progressing toward a state of inner freedom and outer equality.
This s a free chat– feel free to share your thoughts on this and other issues.
