It’s painful to witness. But I’m also hopeful.
I watch the news and wonder: are we at a tipping point in women’s relationship to power?
The old boys club—not just in Hollywood, but everywhere—is being exposed as a bunch of bullies and brutes, consistently abusing their power through egregious behavior or tacit support.
That’s nothing new, of course.
But here’s the hopeful part. Women are refusing to remain victims.
They are unmaking their abusers, en masse.
They’ve made it abundantly clear that the top-down male model of control, domination and self-aggrandizement is not only ineffective, but offensive, dehumanizing and often vicious.
#me too is morphing into #never again.
It’s time that each one of us—you and I—find our voice, join the chorus and take this journey. Even if, especially if, it’s scary.
Never again will we tolerate abuse. Never again, will we suffer in silence. Never again will we water ourselves down so as not to make waves. In our homes or workplaces.
This is what the Feminine Face of Power looks like.
