To Women’s Caucus –

2008, Cricket Diane C “Sparky” Phillips

Our women haven’t been “in the kitchen” for over 50 years. A woman’s “place” as an individual soul that is responsible to God and as a citizen that is responsible to the country of her citizenship, is the full application of the talents, skills, and knowledge that belong to her. If that is hair-dressing or nursing, fine. If that is leadership, presidential politics and business leadership, fine. But, to hinder or thwart those women whose talents and gifts are in traditionally male avenues and positions is a forced subjugation and inherently wrong.

We do not know the place and part each of us must play to fulfill the distance of God’s design within our world and in our own lives. When we decide to say what another can’t do, shouldn’t do, or should not be allowed to do, we are operating in prejudice, bigotry, sexism, racism, intolerance and oppression – and judging what is not ours to judge.

The idea that anyone in our world today must be confined to their own home for their talents to be utilized there for the menial and tedious tasks of housekeeping is an imprisonment being enforce by “social order.”  It is unjustified, grueling and cruel, especially to the human beings being subjugated to it, despite being women, that are fully created by a Greater Authority to accomplish much else.

The bigger problem is that each man and young man being taught and told by significant authorities in their life that “a woman’s place is in the home” is nearly beating their woman to death within their own homes and marriages to make her be what she is not. And, to enforce by force her imprisonment and confinement away from the world where she was born to play a part and to attain her own measure of accomplishments, freedoms, gratifications, successes, expressions of talent and opportunities.
