VALIDATE AND VALUING WOMEN’S LIVES
As we move into 2021 it is now so imperative, that we see hear and acknowledge the others lived experience. Value the other as self. It is essential, that we validate the others truth treat the ‘other’ with genuine RESPECT. It is TIME to embrace equity for US all, NOT just the ‘some of us”.
THE HALLS OF VIOLENCE AND BEING COMPLICIT
Earlier this year staff who happen to all be women, who have walked and worked in Federal Parliament in Canberra.Australia, stepped up to have their truth heard. Women who had bravely stepped up to rightfully tell their truth and have it acknowledged. The truth telling is now in motion.
The truth of these vile acts, that has been inflicted on these women’s beings, their bodies their souls. These behaviours are NOT a new phenomena, it is a systematic behaviour that permeates the patriarchal system that is in its dying days. We all need to bear witness and respond not react to what has just occurred in Canberra, and as noted is a ‘culture of behaviour, not a one off incident.
CLARITY NOT CONFUSION OR CONVOLUTED LIES
It is now imperative we offer clarity not confusion, facts that do not create fear-based fiction. We must provide genuine truth that does not silence victims of ‘man made crimes
PATRIARCHY IS IT’S OWN CONUNDRUM
“It could be said that Patriarchy is CHAOTIC AND RIGID all in the same sentence it utters. Patriarchy is its own conundrum it could be said it is a “constructed reality’ based on who has the right to choose who is deserving and who is being served, who’s needs are being met and who’s aren’t
SYSTEMATIC ABUSE AND MISUSE OF POWER Belo\w is a HEART BREAKING vile truth that is being outed and come to light in the Australian Federal halls of government. Anyone paying attention will be very aware this is a systematic abuse that has a long history and systematically ignored.
A LACK OF INSIGHT NOR COMPASSION IS NOT AN ADEQUATE RESPONSE
It could be said the Australian Federal governments initial response, could be seen as the banality of evil being acted out at the expense of 51 per cent of the population. It could be said it was a completely inadequate response from Australia’s PM. The PM of Australia suggested in regard to getting the police to investigate the matter was not within the governments power. ‘Now, that is not something the government can force, we cannot do that.” SM.
It could be said, the statement above from the current PM ‘of Australia, is so galling and deeply confronting behaviour, an absolute ‘mis step .’ A reaction not helpful NOR a healthy respectful response when the ‘accusations came to light’ (Google it ya self it is part of a ABC interview. It is an early statement in regard to the governments reaction, to their role in acknowledging its protocols and best practice. It begged the question what they considered, their duty of care to employee’s well being in the “Halls of Power .”
The PM after clearly being advised that in fact that it would be best practice, too ‘get cracking; on some long overlooked due diligence in the ‘space of duty of care in Federal Parliament. It is well documented how unsafe women feel in that space.
The PM of Australia, may well have had a traumatic week, and given some empathy training could be pressed too acknowledge he should clean up his own HOUSE as a starting point. EVERY person who works and walks in any work place city region park, street etc, needs to feel safe in doing so.. Apparently they are looking into to it with several investigations being implemented in ‘the Halls of power”, More on that later..
FEIGNING NO POWER PATRIARCHAL DENIAL
The PM feigned having any power in this situation, deeply unsurprising yet a product of patriarchal denial. The silencing of women is a blatant conscious bias that was BORN perpetuated and closely shaped in the so-called ‘halls of power.” As we say at Vita patriarchy created war misogyny has always been the weapon.
MEN GO TO WAR AND WOMEN LIVE ON THE FRONTLINE
The government send people to war, the Defence Minister can buy war weapons of mass destruction and call another woman ‘a lying cow’ when speaking her truth and living the trauma’ On it goes, we close women’s shelters, we under pay women, they can send the perpetrators on sick leave and hide the facts
This is an intergenerational human rights abuse, and we are still left with deep unhealed grief and ever present conscious bias. In another guileless attempt at not meaning too offend anyone he has extraordinarily, stepped deeper into his own lack of insight into how mysoginy is being played out in plain sight, on a daily basis.Yet the Law would tell us ‘ignorance is no excuse. We will unpack that can of worms in part 3 of this series . NO MEANS NO !
It becomes apparent the current Australian PM and quite possibly most of his Ministry, need to realign their CORE belief system, given we are in the third decade of the women’s century. The next election will be a deal breaker I suggest 51 per cent of voters (or his language ‘Market segmentation”) will indicate by their vote NO MEANS NO and will not buy into the 20th Century spin of patriarchy. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
A NEW ACRONYM, for those paying attention that we at “VITA’ are keen to share with those paying attention ‘We have ZERO tolerance for Bullying Instructional Misogynist Relationship or now known globally as “BIMR”
WOMEN WHO WALKED BEFORE ME AND LED US TO WHERE WE ARE NOW
We are moving forward we are living that change right here right now in the third decade of the Women’s Century .VG a great woman who has strutted her stuff and had her voice resonate and heard time after time , while navigating the streets of Manhattan.
