Remembering Pamela Bone, and my own experience as a religious, right of center feminist wannabe
One of my heroes and role-models died this week. Pamela Bone, multi-culturalist and feminist who, in the last years of her life, began to question whether multi-culturalism was excusing violence and repression against women.
Which, I can only pray, one day to be a fraction as affecting and effective as I believe she was, and still is, because she lives on, in print.
She died with the same grace, courage and strength with which she lived. Happily, she died with those she loved around her. She was a fighter, as I aspire to be, for women, and for women’s rights, and she was a writer, as I also aspire to be, and her focus was on women, and injustice and the pursuit of justice and peace.
