In the shadows of menفي ظلال الرجال

 

تكبر الواحدة منا وبها أحلام أمها المفقودة وتمنياتها المثقوبة وشجنها نحو حياة هي أصلها . فالمطلوب أن تكوني قدر التحدي المطلوب لأنك بالرغم من كونك بنتا إلا أنك ستتتحدين هذا العالم وتثبتي أنك جديرة بالوجود عليه . وبنتا تلو البنت كنا …. وأحلام أمي بنا كانت تنفطر وتتبعثر شظاياها في حلم آخر بعيد كل البعد عنا … حلم الذكر. الولد. فمهما كثرت البنات وصلحت ، فلن تعوض وجود الولد

Each of us grows, and inside are the lost dreams and thwarted wishes of our mothers. You are the origin of her dreams’ demise. You are asked to rise to the appointed challenges because, in spite of being a woman, you will face this world and prove you are worthy to exist within it.

Girl after girl after girl was born, and the dreams of our mother broke around us, their shrapnel scattered and then reshaped into another dream far away from us—the dream of the male. The boy. No matter how abundant and well-bred girls are, they can never make up for the absence of a boy.

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...
