As I watch documentaries this week. I watched a documentary on Bruce Lee, which included how the United States... the bigotry of white people was rampant on all people of color. I'm old enough to remember when Asians, African-Americans, Hispanics, Indigenous and many other people of color were rarely, if ever given large acting parts in Hollywood.I'm also observant enough to recognize misogyny. Misogyny, hatred towards the female gender.
I saw it, and was subjected to it growing up. It effected and effects education, business, and sports in female lives. Especially, if you were a girl/woman in sports, politics and business during my childhood and many, many millennium before.
It dawned on me months later, he'd felt threatened by such a small, insignificant person of the female persuasion as myself. He could not fathom how anyone, much less a woman could be so driven, strong-willed, angry, yet productive all at the same time and remain married to one man for so long. So to make it fit into his paradigm, he would put me and my story in an unfavorable light. Which in turn would make people feel sorry for the predator. Twisted? Indeed.
We little women, must maintain the fight. Its never over. And No, I won't get over IT.---Jody-Lynn Reicher
