We women are trying to succeed in a system that at a cellular level was not built for us. To transform that system away from promoting the elevation of white men to the exclusion of virtually everyone else would require a concerted, sustained and radical effort to disrupt long-standing mechanisms. It would require visionary leadership to strongly, with courage and an intolerance for excuses, implement a new way forward.
I am exhausted by their always-promised incremental, presentational, we-gave-you-one-now-shut-up evasions of actual change. I’m ready for a revolution.
