    WHERE BEING A SINGLE
    WOMEN IS NOT OK

    'LEFTOVER WOMEN'

    I recently came across the ignominious and contemptible term ‘Sheng nu’ meaning ‘Leftover women’ – a term used in China to describe single women who are 27 or older. This short op-doc (see link below) – created around a beautiful, intelligent, successful and soulful young woman in her early 30’s – is jawdropping to say the least and a testament to how as a result of China's one child policy and out-dated traditional gender stereotypes, the effects are far reaching, resulting in another form of ‘women shaming’.

    SELF-LEADERSHIP WORKSHOPS FOR WOMEN

    THE RESEARCH IS UNDERWAY ...

    Before I bring the Alamandria women's workshops to the community I will be facilitating discussion groups and creative workshops around what it means to be a woman in the 21st Century. I will be sharing a few personal biographical stories, along with stories from other women that I interview and workshop with along­­­ the way. You can follow me on instagram for some updates and keep checking in here for the latest updates.

    The research so far has been so fascinating and thought-provoking – the diversity and cultural phenomena that exist are extraordinary. So much to engage in!

    A few links to some Youtube examples of the four extraordinary women engaging in US politics right now:

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Challenges Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg – 'So you won't take down lies?'

    Katie Porter: Questions for Equifax CEO 

    Marianne Williamson: Running for President on a Morality-Driven Platform

    Elizabeth Warren: 'Lying to Congress is a Crime'

    WOMEN"S POSTER

    PLEASE COMMENT

    I created my Women’s Poster to use in my upcoming discussion groups with women. It contains icons of women from different movements, epochs, cultures, religions and art. The question arises – what speaks to us as women, and as individuals, and why? 

     

    I would love to hear from you as part of my women’s research!
    You can comment on my Alamandria site here and in the meantime the poster and questions are below:

     

    • What does it mean to be a woman in your eyes?

    • How do these pictures speak to you?

    • Is there one in particular that resonates – if so why?
