Are women their own worst enemies? sphinxx SheEO asked to participate in BBC World Service radio forum on this topic

World Have Your Say programme at the BBC World Service radio in London is hosting a broadcast forum on this very topic this Thursday, the 16th September.  Broadcasting from a BBC Trust event in London, the discussion will involve a group in London, as well as experts dialing in from New York, Iceland, the Middle East and Australia (that’s me!)  I’ve been asked to respond to the issue of whether women are their own worst enemies: ‘Is it women who block equality of women? Do women really think they are equal to men?’

I have my thoughts on these questions – which I’ll share here after the program has aired (it’s on Thursday 16th September at 1700GMT – so any of you working the night shift are welcome to tune in – click here to access a live stream of BBC World Service)

As some of you know, I’m a huge radio fan so this is one event I’m really looking forward to (yes, I know it’s old fashioned but I grew up with a wireless on in the background and I still love it today!)

Post your comments on women ARE their own worst enemies here on The SheEO blog… and I’ll update you with my thoughts after the discussion group on Thursday night Aussie time.

I haven’t been here in a while as the writing has been on hold. But I was reminded today that there are things in our life that light us up. That might take us out of our comfort zone but, once you sit with it, bring you both joy and a sense of “I can do this” achievement. These moments are such a gift. So I’m curious, what’s your special thing that lights you up?

Despite (or in spit of) my professional career, these moments for me normally involve my horses. I’ll never be an equestrian Olympian, but I take great pleasure in all the lessons my horses teach me. They remind me that it’s a team effort, we’re in it together, and that if I’m prepared to give a little bit more, they will too. That’s true whether we’re on the ground taking care of their feet, or grooming, or when I’m atop riding as one. Two hearts one team.
It’s hard to describe the adrenaline and joy they bring to my life. But I’d love to know, what lights you up??

And so, maybe time does change some things. Or women do.

This is what the future looks like, right here. Calling out the BS for what it is. Good luck to the young people of the United States of America in being forth this change.
