Grandma Gladys, Mother Stella, me, Great Gran Flo and Sis Carol. I grew up in a matriarchy, a fierce society of self-taught uneducated women who ruled the roost. Hell, I even went to an all girl school and was taught by more fierce women who said the way ahead was to compete as an equal with a man! My Dad Don was in the Royal Navy and away for long stretches at a time. When he was home he was a huge influence in how to escape. Because as I understood it, there were conflicting messages about being a woman. Gran said it was my job to stay at home and look after the family. We argued and then made up with copious kisses. We even played a game - how many times could you kiss each other before you got fed up. Teachers said 'be a doctor, be a lawyer - and if you're not very pretty or bright find a rich man'. #thewomeninmylife inmylife.
