GlobalWoman Creator and Curator
I am a red-headed white woman of Irish ancestry living on Gadigal land of the Eora Nation. You may know this land as Sydney Australia.
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 world that wasn’t made for us.
Which is why I created GlobalWoman.
To live a luminous life.
Inside GlobalWoman we navigate linear time illuminated by the theme of each lunar cycle.
Luminous themes of structure, revolution, creativity, action, embodiment, self-expression, ancestors, leadership, service, relating, power and vision.
The placement of the New Moon is our starting point for the coming lunar cycle when you set intention to author your own story. Not only do you connect with the community of woman within you, you will connect with the global GlobalWoman community.
Building a world that is bigger rather than smaller.
LUMINOUS is an online membership from GlobalWoman, which includes:
“A mother, a musician, a writer. a Scottish Grenadian Canadian – a mixed heritage, queer, black woman.
I’m a survivor of 10 years of severe childhood sexual, physical and psychological abuse. My primary abuser was my adoptive father. A white American man – twisted by intergenerational violence – raised in a white supremacist family, in a sundown town, in Southern Indiana. We are all connected. What happened to him as a child, in America – harmed me – decades later – as a child, in Canada. I left home at 15 – run, or die. I’ve slept in cemeteries. On park benches. I’m not a college graduate. I’m not famous. I’m not rich. But I am the hero of my own story.
We all are. We all have a sphere of influence, a voice and a perspective that matters. We all carry our scars.”
“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.
We teach girls shame.
“Close your legs. Cover yourself.”
We make them feel as though being born female they’re already guilty of something.
And so, girls grow up to be women who cannot say they have desire.
They grow up to be women who silence themselves. They grow up to be women who cannot say what they truly think.
And they grow up — and this is the worst thing we do to girls — they grow up to be women who have turned pretence into an art form.”
