I finally did it….
January 10, 2012
This is going to be a quick entry, as it’s nearly 3 in the morning! I am a complete blog virgin and it’s taken a while to get a basic feel for things.
I feel a teeny bit lost, coupled with an exciting ‘living-on-the-edge’ feeling right now. The fact that my brain is barely ticking, isn’t helping…..but one thing is for sure – I am SO excited to have finally done this!
In essence, I want to ask women of all ages questions about how they view what’s currently happening in our ‘developed’ world.
WHY? Because there’s more of us…
…AND women are equal to, if not better than, men in the brain sector (as an example – girls have been dominating the honour rolls in our Yr 12 final exams for years).
HOWEVER, although the statistics seem to be weighed in our favour, we are grossly outnumbered in the top end of government, big business and corporations, and therefore have very little imput in making the BIG societal decisions that mould the fabric of our lives – especially that of our children. I feel the current paradigm of our youth is skewing towards an unbalanced and saturating, (prodominantly) man’s world.
I want to start a conversation with women of ALL AGES about this. I really want to know if it’s possible for us to make a change – UNITED – or do we continue with the, “That’s just the way it is”, way of thinking?
This is not anti-male by ANY MEANS. I’m just into the balance of nature – night/day, good/bad, man/woman…..except that last one seems a bit out.
So much for the quick entry – it’s nearly 4.30am now! I think I’ll ask my first question – quite a general one to kick things off:
Question #1: How do you feel about the way in which women are generally being portrayed in this society?
