Sisters & Sisterhood

"Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke. That's their natural and first weapon. She will need her sisterhood." Gloria Steinem

Edmund Charles Tarbell (1862 – 1938) Three Sisters - A Study in June Sunlight 1890

It is much more complicated than sexual harrasment, it is centuries of patriarchy.

"Gender is the remaining caste system that still cuts deep enough, and spreads wide enough, to be confused with the laws of nature." Gloria Steinem. Moving Beyond Words (1994)
