interesting quote by germain greer

“I do think that women could make politics irrelevant by a kind of spontaneous cooperative action, the likes of which we have never see–just so far from people’s ideas of state structure and viable social structure that it seems to them like total anarchy.  And what it is is  very subtle forms of interrelation which do not follow some hierarchical pattern that is fundamentally patriarchal.  The opposite of patriarchy is not matriarchy, but fraternity.  And i think it’s women who are going to have to break the spiral of power and find the trick of cooperation.”

  1. Thank you for posting this quote by Germaine Greer. I am organizing an International Women’s Day event here in my small town and I wanted to write a piece for our newspaper to bring awareness to the day , when that line in the quote
    ” the trick of co-operation ” said by Ms.Greer , came to me. I had heard it on Sinead O’Conner’s album ‘Universal Mother’ many times and always liked it . So now I have the whole thing and can down to my work ! Thanks again…oh, and I love the photo of the bridge , water and tree’s in a misty looking moment that you are using for your blog.
