ladies survive

One of the clearest explanations of how a culture is created that I’ve seen.

“This is how a culture is created.  How a culture evolves.  Fish don’t know that they are swimming in water, and generations of women knew, in the same way that the sky was blue and the sun would set, that to be quiet was to survive.

And to be silent is to survive.  And to be invisible is to survive.  And to be shamed is to feel pain, and to feel pain is to feel shame.  And in our silence we will survive, and we teach our daughters to do the same.

Ladies are quiet.  Ladies survive.”
