In her own right!

the-art-of-womanhood

“Someday there will be girls and women whose name will no longer mean the mere opposite of the male,
but something in itself,
something that makes one think not of any complement and limit,
but only life and reality:
the female human being.”

― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

  1. When men see for themselves the ugly social justice that their domination tactics dominated all the ugliest in life more then the pretty. Something they can only learn themselves.

  2. Have my own treasured copy of the letter to a young poet by Rainer Maria Rilke, a wonderful book that I’m sure many people could benefit from reading. Love his poetry as well.Very interesting quotation from it. Yes I feel women have been kept down by men, and I think society will only start to run more smoothly when this stops, and there is a proper equality for all. He was certainly ahead of his time, in thinking this. Best wishes and blessings, Charles.
