Today is International Women’s Day, celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women globally.
What are we really celebrating?
Women who against the odds and in the face of adversity, economic hardship and cultural repression have risen time and again in systems of patriarchy that sought to sever her from the ground of her being… body and soul.
And still, she rises…
Like water she finds a way up through the parched earth, a tiny droplet of moisture extracted by the light of the moon, enough for one tiny seed to sprout and grow. One tiny seed at a time.
Women are reforesting the deserts of the inner worlds, pushing from the inside out, breaking the petrified mask of Medusa… watering the wasteland.
