The song I am singing—and millions of my sisters and brothers are everywhere echoing the refrain—is one of interdependence and mutual empowerment, of collaboration rooted in life. These are feminine values. Cooperation and emotional connection. Championing one another’s efforts to build a better society and supporting one another’s projects to sustain the earth. p 83
All times are urgent times, yet I don’t think humanity as a whole has ever faced the magnitude of the threat of imminent extinction with which we are presently confronted. And rather than doing everything they can to thwart disaster, certain men in charge of steering the ship of the world are leading us straight into the iceberg. p 89
