The Invisible Woman!

Yesterday, a good  friend sent me an e mail entitled 'Invisible Woman'.  As I read it I could see myself here at certain times in my life - more in the context of being someone's daughter, someone's mother, someone's wife, someone's friend, someone's boss - always being attached to 'someone'.

I enjoyed the read so much that I was intrigued as to who wrote it.  So I went to good old Google and found the 'owner' of this piece is Nichole Johnson.  I also found the following which I do hope you'll enjoy as much as I did.

  2. Wonderful reminder of how society to this day still relegates us to a supporting role.

    Thanks, Bee, for spurring us all on to become less invisible here in blog land. I have enjoyed some fantastic reads this morning since your FB message.

    This is definitely a high point.

  3. As we age, we begin to feel even more invisible. Clerks look past you and wait on someone else. You speak in a meeting, and then someone else says the same thing and his words are acknowledged. My least favorite example was when standing in a checkout line and a woman answered her cell phone and turned and talked loudly directly into my face. It does require some quiet self-confidence when such things happen.

  4. I've felt the same at so many times. I forget what it is to be me.

  6. Interesting how we identify in varying degrees. i was just so fascinated to come upon someone who had put my sometime thoughts, into words. We do occasionally need to remind ourselves who we are because say what you will, no matter who you are, the reality for we women is that at times we are a mere appendage!!

    My stock phrase in our house is "I don't know what you think I did before you all came into my life"!

    Build your cathedrals so that your spires can be seen for miles, by everyone.

    When people talk over or through you (and they do!) "stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage..." well not quite the last part but you know what I mean!

    I too am glad that my comment was not in vain and very pleased to see that some errant bloggers have dusted off their pages as a result!
