Wisdom from mature feminine voices
December 13, 2018
Older women as holders of knowledge and experience. The format is a narrative inquiry and resonates like dimly perceived and remembered conversations at the kitchen table at family get togethers after the kitchen was cleaned up after dinner. The matriarchs would catch up with each other and compare notes and perspectives. The women in this collection are geographically separate but they are equal stakeholders in the conversation. This is truly “Women’s Ways of Knowing” Belinky etc all. and “In a Different Voice” Gilligan. It is delightful and enlightening to read and a joy to hear voices that are so often marginalized or silenced. I have bought several copies to share with my daughter and friends.
