“This is no simple reform. It really is a revolution.”
–Gloria Steinem, from the Address to the Women of America
In grade eight in the Waldorf pedagogy (we are Waldorf-inspired homeschoolers) there is a thread of revolution throughout the lesson year and what with the revolution happening within the child, it makes sense.
This year along with our usual resources I will be attending the Women’s March in DC on Saturday with my grade eight child and another young person. What better resource than being part of an actual social revolution to help a soul connect with the motivations and deep need a group of people feel to risk revolution?
Personally I have waited a large portion of my life for this kind of movement to again coalesce and would not miss the opportunity to go myself and bring young folks with me.
