Hello readers, it’s been a while! I don’t have a lot of time these days, but want to keep this going. Here’s a quote from an article I read from a while back that gave me pause.
‘At an event in Amsterdam recently, I was ordered by a woman on the stage to take the hand of the woman next to me, who happened to be 76-year-old Hedy d’Ancona, and tell her she was beautiful. This would be more conducive to her self-esteem, apparently, than reminding her that, having served as a minister under two Dutch governments, as a member of the European Parliament, and as chairman of Dutch Oxfam, she was immensely distinguished and I was honoured to be sitting next to her.‘ – Germaine Greer.
Think what you like about Greer, but we are so much more than our physical attributes.
