Mature Women - Mujeres Maduras




Women....often... need to return to their past,
to the women who were part of that past,
to girlhood when a self existed that was individual
and singular,defined neither by men,
nor children, nor home,almost as though with
the layers of roles and responsibilities they have
covered over a real person and must now peel back 
those layers and reclaim the self that was just emerging in adolescence.

Mary Helen Washington


Las mujeres a menudo ... .... Necesitamos volver a nuestro pasado,
a las mujeres que formaban parte de ese pasado,
de la infancia, cuando existíamos para nosotras mísmas
sin definiciones dadas por los hombres,
ni hijos, ni casa, sin estar cubiertas por responsabilidades que 
cubren a la persona real y debe ahora pelar las capas para recuperar el ser interno que emergió en la adolescencia.
