I started off this morning with the idea of reposting a blog I wrote in December 2016 titled Feminist Begone.
What began as a Facebook post became a blog update.
It seems as though there are times whilst I am sitting at my desk that my fingers take charge. Often taking me into an entirely different direction than I thought I was going.
Since writing Feminist Begone in December I have decided to put my first novel about my fictitious heroine named Charlie on hold.
My shadow voices are telling me it’s important to share my life here in Bali through the written word.
I have already commenced my next book about my extraordinary life married to Made, living in a Balinese Family Compound and all the hilarious and astonishing stories about life here on The Island of the Gods.
Since returning from my adventure in Hollywood and meeting acclaimed Author Margaret Atwood at the Hollywood Premiere of The Handmaid’s Tale which I wrote about in my blog titled 7 days in LA. I am flabbergasted about the hype and attention the mini series is receiving.
As with all of my blog updates I write from the heart. I write how I am feeling, I write from my own perspective.
Basically I stand by my comments that the word Feminism is out dated. It’s time we united together as humans. We are, after all, humans, right? Isn’t the word humanist more fitting for the year 2017?
I believe its up to us as humans to educate our Children, both girls and boys to believe that equality is NORMAL.
I raised my son to respect both sexes as equal.
James is an only child. I made it my mission as he was growing up to have as many friends of both gender as he wanted visit our home.
I am delighted that his girlfriends and boyfriends are all still his friends. In fact it’s a real bonus that I am also friend’s with this delightful group of accomplished millennials.
It’s our job as parents to empower our Children, to believe friendship and respect should be devoted equally to both sexes.
I don’t want to hear conversations that Atwood’s fictitious story, The Handmaids Tale, could in anyway be a conceivable future reality.
Please don’t get me wrong.
I admire, respect, honour and thank our Sisters before us who fought for the vote, and so much more.
In fact I wrote an assignment whilst I was studying a Diploma of Welfare about the incredible dedication the campaign movement of the Suffragette’s and their contribution to equality.
Suffragette’s were real life Wonder Women.
I would love to hear your thoughts.
Have a great week
