In this land where, as Steve of Wonni tells it, ” ……… men have been decommissioned of traditional roles. ……. (Some people) want us to be demonised as non accepting, small minded , woman-bashing shits.”
So I love and celebrate the humanity of Margaret Mead who was born on this day in 1901.
Mead observed that, “There is no greater insight into the future than recognizing when we save our children, we save ourselves ………” and “………. when women disengage completely from their traditional role they become more ruthless and savage than men.”
What does this mean for women and for the rest of us when fewer women become mothers?
