“There can be and usually is, some degree of pain involved in giving up old ways of thinking and knowing and learning new approaches.” ~bell hooks, Teaching to Transgess
I am working with an old essay (circa 2/2008) and am MORTIFIED by some of my thinking in here:
“WAHMs have been around since the dawn of woman. The indigenous woman who traded her goods and wares or the farmer’s wife who traded her homemade foods certainly didn’t think of themselves as industrious WAHMs, but they were. Modern WAHMs have a much wider range of possible work to choose from and a matched range of successes.”
I can count at least three things that are very, very wrong here. If you don’t see anything wrong with it, let’s talk more later, k?
