We have been privileged to have listened to, and learnt from strong, amazing women our entire lives – “our Mothers” – when and why has this stopped.
When did women – the compassionate gender, the nurturing gender, the forgiving gender, the multi-tasking gender become irrelevant?
‘To all the male clergy I ask you to remember your own mothers- at a minimum – your mother showed faith, strength and love by simply ‘birthing’ you… Everything else after birth has been unconditionally bestowed to you – love, kindness, support, wisdom etc – where has your respect and admiration gone, is this what gratitude is for you – to then ignore their voice?’
