Quote of the Week - Mahfouz

"When I realise that many people I meet in meetings still believe in the mythical narrative of meritocracy I realise retirement is far away." 
~Sabrina Mahfouz

Let's call this the button on Women's History Month.

We do quotes every week, but we love best when quotes are from real, living, breathing humans. I found this one on twitter and I knew it needed more than a RT.

Accomplished writer, performer, poet, feminist, Sabrina Mahfouz is unstoppable. And we need her to be. Because, as she points out here, the playing field is far from level.  There's a lot of work to do.

Let's get busy.

Many thanks to Sabrina for letting me share her words here.
