I'm a woman who knows what she wants. And i want justice. i want poetry. I want our society to grow to a point where the potentiality of women is appreciated. I want my cat to live forever. And right now, i would kill for a cup of tea.
last exam to go! History: revolutions.
Its funny, learning about communism in Russia and China and how brutal the society was that came out of it. But despite this, especially in China, they were way ahead of Western society in terms of womens rights. Really interesting. Mao caused so much death and pain, and suppression, but he granted women all these fundamental rights. I find it kind weird to learn about. How did a society so full of destruction and restriction deem to give women rights like this? it shoudnt make sense. I guess it might just be lost in translation somewhere between East and West. hmmm…..
Also, our history teacher who is a fabulous man, pointed out something. The very spelling of Histoty. His(story.) it so is too. the only time you hear about women is when they;re married to revolutionaries or famous men. Its frustrating. And the ones you do hear about are written so unforgivingly (for all i know they could have been aweful) but it seems odd. Dowager Empress Cixi and Jung Qing, Mao’s wife. maybe a bit backward, but the way historians write about them is so unforgiving.
Hmmm anyway! back to the books! ill be a free woman by Wednesday!
