    International Women’s Day is all very well, but it would be better if it were International Working Class Women’s Day.

    No – as Freire nearly said in his discourse with Macedo – we cannot place women in the same position within the oppresive structures as men, for women are oppressed by men. We should accept Friere’s concept that men and women are in different oppressive locations.

    short summary from Literacies of Power by Macedo.

    Women must have the opportunity to discuss matters on their own, free from the interference of men so as to develop progressive ideas from their engendered position of a subservient group.
