Stepping onto a brand-new path is difficult, but not more difficult than remaining in a situation, which is not nurturing to the whole woman.

Resistance against anything at all is only effective for so long. But resistance is necessary; it builds awareness, it educates. And it shouldn’t stop there. The idea is not only to resist, but exist. And in order to do that, we need to invite one another to the idea of co-existing.
It is often the most basic things that we need to remind ourselves about. We’re human, after all. This is an idea I try to emphasize in my book, By Bodies of Water.
