I found this post written by Damyantig and I just had to share. It addresses important questions which are important to reflect upon and discuss with others. Especially, I’ve found that it is important to discuss gender across different cultures, as it makes you understand valuable perspectives about the choices people make that sometimes initially doesn’t makes sense. For me, coming from a country which ranks almost on the top of the list when it comes to gender equality and female independence, it is extremely valuable to learn about women in different cultures and the challenges they face. It certainly keeps me thankful and grounded. It also convinces me that it is important to keep focus on gender issues and hopefully contribute to some reflections on the topic.
