Breaking down barriers
Being around like-minded people is important. A friend brought this article to my attention otherwise I wouldn’t have read it. I was hesitant at first, wondering where the article was going, but the author’s conclusion slotted right in to my jigsaw.

I’m a great proponent of ‘consciousness’ – initially black consciousness as defined by the South African Steve Biko. Rather than feminism which seems to promote women behaving like men to be equal, I preferred female consciousness: succeeding because I am who I am and I don’t deny my female-ness. But with the tendency today of compartmentalising everything, I’ve become more anti-label than ever before. Is there such a thing as people-consciousness?
Let people succeed because of their skill, not because they fit a box.
