femanisim

And if I don’t have the talent to write books or newspaper articles, I can always write for myself. But I want to achieve more than that. I can’t imagine living like Mother, Mrs. van Daan and all the women who go about their work and are then forgotten. I need to have something besides a husband and children to devote myself to! …
I want to be useful or bring enjoyment to all people, even those I’ve never met. I want to go on living even after my death! And that’s why I’m so grateful to God for having given me this gift, which I can use to develop myself and to express all that i have
Why are men afraid of women?
“If your strength is only the other’s weakness, you live in fear,” said Ged.
“Yes; but women seem to fear their own strength, to be afraid of themselves.”
“Are they ever taught to trust themselves?” Ged asked.
“No,” she [Tenar] said. “Trust is not what we’re taught. If power were trust, I like that word. If it weren’t all these arrangements- kings and masters and mages and owners- it all seems so unnecessary. Real power, real freedom, would lie in trust not force.”
