Singing Silent Night to my daughter tonight, I knew what I wanted to say in today’s brief update. Atop of my list of reasons for laboring over Anatomy of a Schism is to transform the future for her generation. Gender is among the most powerful formations – personally, relationally, and socially. It remains a dividing line for inequities of wealth, education, religion, political power, and justice. Just naming it reproduces the inequities, but without naming and understanding its effects, we will never change it.
Today I inched closer to making my contribution toward the work of changing both understandings and inequities of gender. It matters for my daughter and the next generations.
