When women are in conflict is it because forces are keeping them from being who they are. Nature is completely free of the constructs and conditioning that try to dictate who we should be. Nature is a woman. Earth is a mother. When we crave wildness it is not that we need or seek something new, it is that we crave to return. To return to who we are. In the same way, we discuss the strength of women today in equality discourse as something new, almost as novelty. When the truth is we have always been strong. Even the word ’empowerment’ presupposes a provision or a permission of power, which is a nullity because it simply is. Leadership is not linear. It is spherical, holographic, nuanced, visible, and invisible. The power has always been there. The process for women today is refining the individual method and modality. The weapons of choice. Nothing can stand in the way of a determined woman. Even history in all its warped inversion cannot deny us this. We choose our stories.
