GlobalWoman Creator and Curator
There comes a time in every woman’s life when she has to decide to change herself to fit the world or change the world itself.* I was that woman.
I was exhausted with changing myself to fit a world that didn’t nourish me, and I no longer wanted to participate in upholding it.
I know I’m not the only woman who is done, possibly exhausted, with doing the work of fixing/bettering/improving herself to fit into a narrative that is exclusionary.
It’s not enough to be #girlboss and #femaleempowerment and #highvibes.
As the founder of GlobalWoman and a white woman, I acknowledge that I have benefited from being raised within a white supremacy society.
When I speak of co-creating a female centred world without considering if that world is a safe-space for all female identifying people.
I acknowledge that was born into a society that valued white people above all others.
When I speak of co-creating a female centred world and assume that world is a white women’s world.
When I speak of co-creating a female centred world without asking what black women and women of colour want in that world.
When we talk about ‘blocks’ without looking at the systemic structures that are the real blocks to an individual’s success.
When we speak and don’t listen.
Our starting point at GlobalWoman is recognising how patriarchy and white supremacy are inextricably linked and the harm they cause.
…exploring and evolving self-care, dismantling patriarchy and white supremacy, navigating and managing COVID 19, astrology beyond gender, patriarchy and whiteness, what we’re reading, listening and watching plus business for GlobalWoman entrepreneurs.
To co-create the world we need now.
It’s not enough to believe in something. For the world to change, you have to be ready to stand for what you believe in.
We also know that there’s more than one way, and more than one path to follow, for a woman finding a life that is hers.
Which is why we created the GlobalWoman World.
At the heart of GlobalWoman, you’ll experience empathy, relating, creative intelligence, dedication, integrity and a pro-active spirit.
For the world you need now.
Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?
Some people ask: “Why the word feminist? Why not just say you are a believer in human rights, or something like that?” Because that would be dishonest. Feminism is, of course, part of human rights in general—but to choose to use the vague expression human rights is to deny the specific and particular problem of gender. It would be a way of pretending that it was not women who have, for centuries, been excluded. It would be a way of denying that the problem of gender targets women.
A feminist ethic of care guides the historic struggle to free democracy from patriarchy; it is the ethic of a democratic society, it transcends the gender binaries and hierarchies that structure patriarchal institutions and cultures. An ethics of care is key to human survival and also to the realization of a global society.
