I feel that as women we've allowed ourselves to be deluded
by certain ideas that hold us back,
such as the over-glorification of masculine consciousness.
To me, liberation doesn't mean that I can think just like a man.
Real liberation means that I can think, act, and be like a woman
and receive equal respect, honor, and compensation.
Liberation also means that even though I'm a woman
I have masculine parts of my temperament which I can safely explore
and integrate into my experience.
In the same way, real liberation for men
means that they can explore and integrate
their feminine aspects of consciousness.
