My online friend and fellow blogger Christel-Michel Kruger aka The Nocturnal Wenchy opened her blog up to guest bloggers to write about women’s issue this Women’s Month.
I thought this was a fantastic initiative and as my contribution to Women’s Month (and on its last day), I thought that you may enjoy taking a look at these posts. There are (by my count) a total of five guest posts that I heartily recommend you take the time to read. I will do my best to give you a flavour of these below:
Melanie writes from the heart about what it means to her to be a woman. Some of her ideas may be problematic to the transgender woman, especially her desire to define womanhood in terms of ones ability to bring forth life, but there are other thoughts that resonate and as I say, she is writing from her unique perspective.
Laura writes quite beautifully about doors. What they do, their symbolism and what they mean to us generally and her in particular. New beginnings, choices and opportunities are all represented.
Rephethile writes of her experiences with mental health and how these have affected her and her relationships. Issues of race and how different races typically relate to mental health issues are raised. It certainly gives insight into the hardships we experience.
Marietjie writes passionately and with humour about boobs. In particular breast health and her personal experiences with this rather frightening health issue.
Finally, yours truly attempts to explain something of my experiences with male privilege. The effect it has and its pernicious nature and what we as women can do to make astart at tackling it in society…
Pop over to the blog, give these articles (and the many other excellent articles there) a read. You will, I am sure, find it time well spent.
