This is the corner of our community that’s clearly more relevant to women than men, as its focus is on preventing and repairing the damaging consequences of patriarchal systems. Having said that, the lives of countless men have also been wrecked by this ruthless, win-at-all-costs belief system, so there’s plenty of healing needed all round. However, the emphasis here is on the damage done to women.
For those women who’ve been abused or suppressed in some way, they carry an extra burden: the draining complexity of their own situation.
To expect them to suddenly become a high-level change leader would be unfair and unrealistic. However, it’s not unrealistic to expect other women in their networks to step forward and offer effective support, gradually restoring hope, cultivating self-esteem and boosting confidence.
We hope the content under this theme may assist both the women who need support, those who are offering support, and those who wish to communicate influentially about the issues.
Ignorance around these difficult, deeply damaging problems serves no-one.
