Grace and Justice
The Graceworks conference was a great celebration and a joy to be a part of.
Part of the highlights for me was sharing a workshop with Melinda Tankard-Reist. Melinda is a tireless crusader for justice in Australia. Work through the Women's Form Australia - she has written some amazing books and articles and gives us the truth about the sexualisation of women and girls in australian society. Check out her blog - and her new website and movement 'Collective Shout'.
The stuff she presents is so important - it's painful to watch and to become aware of - but it's essential for our future.
I think the future of our children are dependant on our getting involved now. Challenging current cultural norms that suggest women are measured by their 'sexiness' instead of their ability to create a better world. What better place than a women's conference to mobalize?
Perhaps Justice, is one of the ways Grace works in the world?
