International Women’s Day – Break The Bias

International Women’s Day – Break The Bias

International Women’s Day provides a key time to celebrate women, we asked our Rix & Kay colleagues if they would like to participate, and so to continue the week of celebrations, here are some quotes:

One of my very favourite quotes is: “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on those accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of [people] and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the Earth all one’s lifetime.” (Mark Twain) If we extend the idea of travel to include the notion of exploration and discovery, it seems to me we can break the bias by really taking time to talk to and learn about one another, rather than categorising and dismissing each other.

In one thing society is very good, and that is to judge others
We are tired of the thousands of small cuts
So society if you can’t inspire us, don’t demolish us either
Do not let our judgemental society dominate our real lives
