Leonard Pacelli (10.02.16-Montreal)
The long march for women has been more a long and painful crawl. At every stage certain women lifted themselves above the clamoring bringing with them other women. Only in the human has there been this repression bordering on denigration of one half of the world's population. One fact that is indisputable; that is, once another rung on the social and cultural life has been grasped there is no going back. It takes women of strength to reach up and take hold. Others will follow. What is the proof of this? This answer is simple: it has already happened by means of male artists, thinkers and writers. Think of the movements such the Enlightenment, the Expressionist shift in how we view the world around us, the great thinkers on whose words we have built our various societies. It is happening with women. The world is already changing. The twentieth century was the great lifting out of the dark, dimly lit back rooms of history for women in the Western World. Women will be fully free when they convince men to shed the shackles of ignorance binding and blinding them. It remains the task of women now to reach that next rung and not to let go! Leonard Pacelli, Maria-Helena's Papa.
