A day can help you measure the trajectory of your life, help you gauge how far you’ve come, what is left still to achieve. A day is a narrative in the life of woman in 2016 and the question hangs in the air like gossamer- what does it mean to be alive today? To come this far with ancestral memories of heroines in the closet, strange antecedents from our collective unconscious, with the pushing tremors of globalisation creating new stories. An urgent recognition of different worlds. At no other time in our history has the courage of woman been so defined with archaic resonance of times when precedents were created in art, science, human rights and family. Woman is the bridge and boundary. The rock and transmission of values we hold in our heart. Whilst Alfred J Prufrock measured his life ‘in coffee spoons’, his wives inspired some fine forgotten verse. Out of the shadows. The courage of woman through the changing landscape across continents has it’s own language for each generation. A narrative imbued with impossible strength, beauty and love.
