* International Women’s day series *

20:00 . ‘I believe in the importance of women becoming less judgemental towards each other. We – women – are harsher on each other, perhaps also because we share much more with each other: we share personal stories and for some reason that opens up room for judgement instead of understanding and acceptance. Through the club, I learned to pause for five seconds before commenting on something, I learned to think more carefully about giving my opinion or not to another. Sisterhood can be as simple as complimenting another woman. The club’s aim is to create an atmosphere of acceptance instead of competition amongst ourselves. I’m kind of (still) going through the learning process myself. (She laughs)
