Men Were Protecting Women with their Hearts by Molly Scott

“I was touched by the local, tribal stories and the women’s prayer ritual when the men were called, as in an archetype, to be the protectors of women in the ceremony.  Men, old and young, rose to the occasion with affirming arms, and, in some measure, hearts.  I reflected, not for the first time, how my experience with men is that I need to be protected from them, not by them, so this ceremony moved me deeply.”
