Beyond Patriarchy: An Unexpected Encounter

Jihan McDonald shares a story of an unexpected encounter with strangers in a store that forces the author and all of us to look beyond patriarchy, its binary categories, and the way it keeps us separate from the stranger/other and the Earth itself. "I must get away from HISstory and HERstory and get into THISstory: this story that the Earth is telling itself through us, this story that the Earth is telling the Universe through us, and vice versa."
