Comment on Before I was a white woman… by Margaret Katranides http://www.riverwater.net/white-woman/#comment-2387 Wed, 22 Mar 2017 15:32:15 +0000 http://www.riverwater.net/?p=1401#comment-2387 Do you know the story of the Bridge of Arta? The artisans and apprentices worked all day, every day, to build it, and every night it would fall down. Finally a voice came to the master builder, that he must bury his beloved wife in the foundation, or the bridge would never stand. He tried to avoid the command, but finally obeyed, and the bridge stood. The modern saying is that women hold up half the sky, and there are men who support this belief; but in earlier days, and still in our own, the actuality is that women are buried in the foundations of patriarchy. It’s a tricky place from which to hold up the sky.
