"I understand the impetus behind the counting of children and female casualties. The killing of innocents in Gaza by Israel’s war machine is a crime. But Palestinian men are victims of Israeli state terrorism too. Let’s not repeat the logic of the war on terror, where only children and women can be victims but men (including boys over 15, sometimes 13) are always suspects and thus somehow they share in the blame of their own death. This is the gendering of the War on Terror: our men and boys are inherently dangerous and are merely the potential for violence encased in human flesh. Furthermore, every woman who lives and loves and loses and struggles within Israel’s military occupation and siege is a revolutionary. You do not have to pick up a gun in Gaza to be a revolutionary or an “enemy” of Israel. You just have to be alive and to insist on living. After all, isnt’ that point of settler colonialism?"

"'It might make it possible - in some new world - for the sexes to talk to each other, like people…. Of course we ought to be able to vote. But I don't know that having the vote will affect the things that frighten me.' Griselda paused. “Whereas, if I wrote a really good book, that might. Or of you invented a new surgical procedure, or discovered a new drug.'"

-

Griselda Wellwod on women getting the vote in the UK.  From The Children’s Book, by A.S. Byatt.

Every line of this book is so carefully placed and of utmost importance. It’s been a while since of read such an exquisitely crafted and complex novel.

"When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. “This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar” she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’ It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions?"
