Musing About Sisterhood

Every Tuesday Two Writing Teachers ” sponsors an opportunity to share your writing.

In an effort to be more disciplined about my writing, I am trying to start what I think of as weekly writing  features.  Posts that will contain writing on specific subjects.  One of the subjects is feminism.  I started a column last week that I named Feminist Friday.

As part of writing this column, I have been doing a lot of reading on the subject of feminism.  One of the books I am reading is Feminism is for Everybody: Passionate Politics by Bell Hooks.

In my reading this morning she reminds the reader about the importance of sisterhood.  Bell feels that the feminist movement has lost its emphasis on women remembering to help women.

I know that since most of the “Slicers” are teachers that you need no reminder about helping other women.  I see evidence of your generosity to each other when I open my computer every morning.

I was a recipient of that generosity myself on Sunday.  Carol Varsalona, one of our Slicers, has been very generous to me in sharing her knowledge about digital renderings.  Thank you, Carol.

And thank you, all of you beautiful slicers, for your daily examples of generosity as you share your time and your knowledge without any fear of scarcity.

The woman that modeled for this image was actually named Geraldine Doyle and was a real riveter in the 1940s.

About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

  1. Bernadette,
    What a great idea, creating areas to write about and dig into. I agree we Slicers, mostly teachers are quite adept in the giving department. I think it has a lot to do with the teacher side of us. Your discovery is interesting. I’m wondering,is that because they are helping everyone equally or not at all.
