Consciousness Raising Begins in Conversation

Connection. Cognition. Communication.

I do not believe that new stories will find their way into texts if they do not begin in oral exchanges among women in groups hearing and talking to one another. As long as women are isolated one from the other, not allowed to offer other women the most personal accounts of their lives, they will not be part of any narrative of their own. [...] There will be narratives of female lives only when women no longer live their lives isolated in the houses and the stories of men.
