(social) power

“As women seek to attain more social power, they may begin to self-objectify, internalizing the notion that it is their body and their appearance to others that matter most. In doing so, women participate in their own oppression, limiting their own experience, and expression of their full selves. ”

Hillary McBride and Janelle Kwee

In our search for “power”, maybe we should consider:

  • how am I obtaining this power?
  • what does it give me?
  • is it causing harm?
