I’m in a period of my life where I’m re-connecting with old female friends and strengthening my bonds with current ones.

Every new story I am told, every experience that is shared with me, and the circumstances women have undergone…are all interlaced with dynamics of power and abuse that give me grief and sorrow for the trauma experienced by my people.

Stories of rape, of unfair treatment, of emotional, mental and physical abuse, of blatant disrespect, of misogyny, of assault…I can go on.

To be a woman in this world is to be a target.
