#In the Shadows of Men

I lived my life within harmony with this aspect. Modesty and richness. Contentment and ambition.

But I had to always remember that I am a girl. Be a man and remain a female. Be responsible and never forget that your strongest weapon is your beauty. Get tired, strive, struggle and resist, but beware, you are a woman. Your space is limited and your freedom is locked, with a locker that your mother puts and your father owns its key. And your actions are responsibility, any gag is a loss to your girl sisters … and never forget … that your arrival was a conditional good omen … after all… you brought behind you seven girls.

Exploring my own Shoes ... somehow my walk , my way ... Being a woman is one thing . One important thing of originally two things. However, living in a global patriarchal dominance makes one thing dominant of another . A lifetime struggle of women resilience for being the one thing they are Women . All the resilience of being a woman is another ONE thing . For being a Moslem woman is another thing . Being a Moslem woman living in an Occupied land is definitely a totally other thing. What if you add divorce to this ? Being a Woman, a Moslem , a Palestinian and Divorced … makes the introduction to living in my shoes… Living in a Shoe of a Woman. PS. English is not my first language.. I know I often need to edit , however, there is something in the power of the 'click send' button.. ever since I did it the first time .. I enjoy clicking directly from my heart...unedited...
