This blog was started primarily as a collection of private writings as I started to form my own thoughts, opinions, and questions about my role as a female in the world around me. As the collection grew I knew for it to become truly vast I had to put it on display and invite discussion – I cannot learn and change without the knowledge of others.
Primarily I will approach the issues surrounding patriarchy and modern feminism. This is not in any way intended as a slight against men’s movements in equality (pertaining to divorce rights, child custodial legal rights, et cetera). I believe that with gender equality and the dismantling of “traditional” gender roles these issues will be resolved. Inequality towards men is inherently rooted in the oppression of women.
Please keep all debate civil. Inflammatory comments will be deleted, contrary ones will not. We all learn and change through rational debate!
