I am Female – I am not the Other

 It is disheartening to be a woman.  Tell it to Eve. Or actually any female who walks the earth.  In some societies we are kept veiled and stoned for our sexual desires.  Here we are lectured to by men who ought to know better.  Have they no wives, sisters, mothers, lovers, lady friends???  To hear the arguments about birthcontrol, etc. by men who want to run the country is to indulge in sitting in on monologues in a language that is not even accessible at Berlitz.  What is the problem with the communication skills of politicians?

 We live in a world of supposedly growing equality.  Women are now in high positions not just in the missionary position.

Equally we are the mothers of your children, guys. We have boys and girls under our tutelage.  Trust us.  Trust us about ourselves, what moves us and what limits us.  I am not the other.  I am here.  Included. Listen to me.  Then maybe I will return the favor by listening to you.


About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
