Women won the right to vote in this country in 1920, and yet, almost 100 years later women still find themselves as second class citizens in too many ways. Now we find ourselves at a tipping point, where countless women are (re)claiming their voices, their stories and their power. Yet the patriarchy is lashing out in fear. This Sunday, let us draw inspiration from matriarchal societies and cultures, and explore what a more egalitarian society would mean not just for women but for people of all genders.
