Recently I attended a couple of events to celebrate International Women's Week. They were both very enjoyable, interesting and absorbing, organised by WINDO (Women Initiating New Directions Organisation) on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
The image to the right reflects, for me, the common ground we all can share, no matter what age. They look like female hands, but then I may be wrong. In fact, what really impressed me about the two (2) events I went to, was the acknowledgment and recognition of the many good and wonderful men in our midst as being an integral part of being a wise woman.
It was really heartening to hear, at these two events how the men and women talked about the appreciation they had for the women or men in their lives, the respect they had in each others strengths and weaknesses, and working together to achieve a desired result.
How I wish that was happening more in the wider community. Embracing our differences, respecting diverse cultures and living in harmony.
