Burning Bras

In the 60s and early 70s many young women did not wear bras, although they burned them….even metaphorically. I am just in the midst of writing a script for an evening I am presenting on Feminism.
Well, we’re back to bras once more….in addition to other artificial supports of the myth of the female.

Now I am not young and have no desire for arson of my underwear, but I am honored to be working on something that addresses the new disregard for women that seems to be in the air.

Maybe I did not come “a long way”, but I took a sharp lefthand turn off the main road of convention
from woman’s lib. We got the vote, ladies! Let’s use it to good advantage.

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!
