Notes on the Journey

Silencing Women

Comments on: "Silencing Women" (2)

  1. It’s very brave of them to speak up. I know that I don’t have the courage to connect my name to my ideals, the potential impact on my career is far too large. And that is the precise issue, we are being demonised, we are being portrayed as evil, and the only way to break from that is to let our voices be heard.

    • I speak out because I am elderly and disabled, at the end of my battleaxe career. As an elderly woman my voice is automatically discounted and I am seen as bitter and crazy. Typical patriarchal projection. But the words I say have the power of truth and once heard they stick in people’s minds and then they have to examine the foundations of their belief system. Pretty crafty. eh?
