‘Nevertheless, SHE Persisted.’

There are many ways that American culture

tells women to be quiet

—many ways they are reminded

that they would really be SO MUCH MORE pleasing

IF they would just smile a little more,

or talk a little less,

or work a little harder to be

PLIANT

and

AGREEABLE.

X
X

Women are,

in general,

extremely ATTUNED to these messages;

we have,

after all,

heard them

ALL

OUR

LIVES.

There
is a

Native American parable

about a ELDER who says:
 “I feel as if I have

two wolves

fighting

in my heart.

X
X

One wolf is the

vengeful, angry one.

The other wolf is the

loving, compassionate one.”

X

X

 When asked which wolf

will win the fight in their heart,

the ELDER replies: 

The one I feed.”
