A Cry For Sisterhood In Celebration of Women

It was Nelson Mandela who said,

“Freedom cannot be achieved unless women have been emancipated from all forms of oppression.” (tweet this)

As women, we’ve made many strides. For starters, we’ve earned the right to vote, we’re able to hold office and we no longer have to sit at the back of the bus.

As we celebrate those achievements, let us remember there is more to do.

All over the world women are still oppressed. In countries where women and girls are marginalized, we can clearly see the disparities. However, for those of us who enjoy the comforts that living in a modern country afford us, the oppression of women is more complex.

Oppression for the modern woman is wrapped in shame, silence and separation.

We’re shamed about our bodies. We’re told what size we should be. We’re taught that our sexuality is dangerous and that anger and assertiveness makes us bitches. We learn that being emotional equals weakness, that our desires are frivolous, and femininity is our enemy.

We’re silenced by a society that tells us to be strong, but not too strong or we’ll be labelled angry. A society that places “good” girls on a pedestal and exploits the “bad” ones.  A society that tells us not to be too much (of anything) or else.

We separate ourselves from our sisters. We learn not to trust other woman because they’ll take take what we have — whether it’s a man or a job. We separate ourselves from men. Instead of seeing them as brothers, we lose ourselves in their presence either by shrinking or overcompensating.

In the worst cases, there are women who oppress other women and defend and protect the very individuals and institutions that have oppressed us all.

However, many of us continue to buy into the idea that happiness equals having a man, excelling at our career, being a supermom with a picture perfect family. We spend years falling into this fictional wonder woman trap and we pour our souls into our men and partners, into our children, into our jobs and into everyone around us. After many years of doing this, we’re left running on empty wondering who we’ve become.

At this point, we seek out practices that help us — we do yoga, we meditate, we chant, and try anything else that promises to recalibrate our souls.

Yet, deep down the wound still exists in our hearts.

How do we heal?

The (real) Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

I sat in the dark theater trying my best not to do the ugly cry, but I couldn’t help it. So with my black mascara running, bottom lip quivering, and snot dripping down my nose, I watched the final moments of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

If you haven’t seen it, it’s about two lovers (impeccably played by Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey) who go to extreme lengths to forget about one another after breaking up. After finding out Clementine (Kate Winslet) had the memories of their relationship erased Joel (Jim Carrey) decides to do the same.

Revisiting this movie made me think about the great lengths we go to to forget our hurt, pain, anger, sadness and shame. While these characters used a futuristic procedure to forget most of us try to erase the past through numbing ourselves with food, entertainment, alcohol, sex, drugs and toxic relationships and behaviors.

However, no matter how hard we try to get away from the pain, it seems to always find us again.

But what if I told you there was a way to wipe the slate clean and start over?
