Women – thank you

This is why we are so thankful to all the women out there.

Slowly, through socializing and lots of creative projects with other women in the community, I started to discover how much loving, caring attunement, hilarity and fun there can be in women’s friendships. How worthy of trust these women were. – Mitra Martin

I remember turning up to one tango milonga on a Sunday night. I was one of five men present. I had been dancing five years at this point. I was with the least experience of the five men present. And I wondered where the hell had all the women gone?

It eventually filled up and there were not enough men to go around. And once again there was beautiful girls in flowing dresses waiting to be picked out. The feet were tapping in time to the music. The faces were neutral but their hearts wanted to sink into the tango world; to carve out the gorgeous circles as they travelled around the room; to give meaning to the word tango if only for twelve minutes.

Have a read. And be the difference you want to see in the world.
