Being a woman is a complex process. Our journey of womanly discovery is both light and airy AND dark and mysterious. As women. we are constantly bombarded with rules, perceptions, and impressions about womanhood; so much so, that finding our way is often elusive. When I tally the things that I know for sure about being a woman, most of what I know has come from other women. My grandmother used to say: “Women sharpen women.” She meant that in its broadest sense: the older woman’s knowledge sharpens the younger woman, the younger woman’s innovation discourages the older woman’s surrender, the mistress sharpens the wife.
In this section, I want to share some of my random thoughts on womanhood. And invite guest commentators to share theirs as well.
