Females are deprived of their basic human rights for no other reasons than their gender. That is the main question I have been trying to find the answer to with this project. I have a lot of love. Patriarchy is a social structural phenomenon in which women have been dominated and considered as the oppressed class. And that’s a good place for Tonglen practice. Her struggle against patriarchal domination becomes meaningful only when she integrates into the female bonding with other black women: Nettie, Sofia and Shug Avery. Because I have a cat and I adore her. INTERVIEW WITH MARIANNE SCHNALL (12/12/06) Marianne Schnall: Congratulations on this amazing book “We are the Ones We Have Been Waiting for” – it contains so many important insights and observations the world needs to hear. Hopefully, the human mother and then of course the Earth Mother. Or they talk about all the beautiful colors in the fall – that’s about all they know. It’s a shame though, because if we could develop in ourselves a lot of compassion for other beings, we wouldn’t have to watch their destruction and humiliation and terrorizing of them in order for us to be moved, to be fearful of what could happen to us. When she does, she creates female autonomy setting the condition by which she lives and experiences life. How can we help women embrace the aging process and value their role as elders and a source of wisdom and power in our society? Womanism is a form of feminism focused especially on the experiences, conditions, and concerns of women of color, especially Black women. And that alone, just the cycle of the kind of brutality that goes into killing all of those creatures, and then sort of mindlessly eating them, and almost nobody even thinks about where all of their waste is going. You don’t have to be what you’re not in any way. Well, you know, that right there is major. MS: There seems to be a growing awareness of how our inner reality is connected to our outer reality, even in the fact people are coming to Buddhism maybe because the suffering is so much... AW: Yeah, that will get them in. MS: What’s your prayer for the children of the future? Even a great philosopher like Aristotle declared, “”the female is female by virtue of certain lack of qualities”” (qtd, in seldon 134), and so thy can’t be compared with men who inherently posies good qualities and St. Thomas Aquinas believed that women is an “”imperfect man”” (qtd in seldon 134). And that’s a real hard one because we have been addicted to meat, to animals as meat, you know. MS: You write and talk a lot about the role of personal transformation. The lesbian continuum is a term [...]. She has In fact, I advocate that every woman be a part of a circle and a circle that meets at least once a month, or if you can’t do that, once every two months or every four months. It was very clear that she was still surrounded by men and becoming more male every day. MS: So many of us feel like we’ve been “wronged” in some way. This epistolary structure not only challenges male discourse and the western literary tradition but also reconstructs the black feminist literary tradition. And then our dreams will lead us to the right way. I think we love Oprah because she speaks her mind, and she is honest about her life, and about the processes. Now everybody knew it was alive. And because to see someone with so much power, and she uses it, I think, so often for such good. We will send an essay sample to you in 2 Hours.

MS: I have also read a few interviews in which you talk about the spiritual practices that have most helped you, like Tonglen and meditation. AW: No, of course it isn’t. The color purple symbolically suggests in its physical size the position power of womanist text within the canon: dominated by the weigh, prolixity and authority of masculine accounts of female subjectivity (1107). MS: Do you see humanity as evolving? The universal problem faced by women. Society label men as independent people. The different extract of story has taken to prove the hypothesis. In the Color Purple she shows her heroine trapped in the whole range of possible oppressions Celie’s struggle to create self through language to break from the network of class’ racial’ sexual and gender ideologies to which she is represented as the women’s story in an innovative way. I think all this zipping around the world is over-rated. It’s crucial. MS: That reminds me of something you wrote in your book, about the need for a “pause” – a pause to reflect. What is so striking about the photographs that accompany the article in Rolling Stone about the factory farming of pigs - and this is a must read for humanity - in which we see the human look of fear and suffering on the faces of the pigs about to be slaughtered, juxtaposed with the face of the man who is responsible (along with the blissfully ignorant public) for their mistreatment, and, physically, they resemble each other so much! And so many African Americans especially, and Americans generally, now see not only that we are in a lot of danger from “natural disasters’’ and that’s what they are, disasters, but we are also in danger because we are led by people who watch us struggle, and suffer and die while other people outside the country are offering help to save us – and they won’t let that happen. How do you view and understand Oprah’s importance and popularity, as one of the most powerful women in the media, and certainly as one of the most powerful African American women, possibly in the world? And that leads to not caring that those people are being treated very much like slaves. MS: Speaking of language and linguistics, with a site called Feminist.com, I am always amazed at the misconceptions there are about feminism, and the many women who clearly are feminists but who would never call themselves that. In my book, I’m talking about a speech that Fidel Castro gave in which he talks about how the three richest people on the planet own more than 48 poor countries combined. And you see that in the way that very young girls are sold – often because their parents are really poor, but generally speaking it’s the father who does the selling. There is inherent black women identification in the black female literary tradition. Their works reconceptualize those contexts and a tradition in light of black women’s lived experience and achievements. And how dare you have to forgive these horrible people. AW: Well, I think that I do feel that my nature is to express what this self, this particular self at this time, experiences in the world. And it wasn’t the first time they had refused an offer from Cuba. You can let it be known that you don’t agree with them. I know they do. ©Marianne Schnall. Much of the feminist theory is concerned with inventing language to resist domination as Kaplan argues : While it is certainly true that important tenants of feminist criticism and theory have developed from formulation of silence and repression, it is just as true that feminist theory has always been concerned with identifying the modes by which women writers have resisted domination ,have broken silence, have protested, have reinvented and transformed myth, traditions and forms have found means to express pleasure and desire as well as pain and constraint (349). Men and women are labeled in society. The study focuses on the language that the black woman invents to express her private feelings and the black women’s community for the voice of liberation. And then elders have to be willing to assume the role of the person who gets to speak about society and where it seems to be going and what it needs. Walker cites the phrase “acting womanish,” which Black mothers said to a child who willfully acted serious, courageous, and grown-up rather than “girlish,” as generally expected by society. And that people have it in them to rise to that. MS: I struggle sometimes with the notion of organized religion and how it relates to spirituality - and that so much of the wars and intolerance in the world is over religion. No portion of this interview may be reprinted without permission of Marianne Schnall . We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For: | about us AW: It has to be there. And I have maintained some form of meditation, yoga, a lot of walking. So I think consciousness is very poor, actually. The novel combines Celie’s development and transforms the status of narrative from the characteristics of Black vernacular to the more enduring textuality. And when humanity understands, really with the heart, that they have been doing all of this to their mother, I believe there will be a great shift in the world. Black women can’t construct female identity until they enter into the community and share their common sufferings. Religion is going to be more self-styled. And the reason that’s true is that you always can work with yourself. Women have been considered as a sexual object and suffered under the patriarchal hegemony. And that’s an illusion. And wanting very much to touch other people with that. Both Celie and Nettie know linguistic competence is the way out of their oppression world. In this way, Celie understands herself and the world very nearly and also helps her to assert selfhood and a quest for personal freedom within the cultural legacy. In fact, I did a year of studying medicinal plants. They have been historically subjected to patriarchal dominance and they are struggling to liberate themselves from male domination and establish their identity. It is the most sensible thing. You may not particularly care for the design, but it is what she wants to be doing with her life. The letters Celie receives from Nettie widens the perspective of Celie’s Africa. I have not found any thesis done upon the novel till now and my works will be great help for the researchers and literary text from point of view of feminism. The incidents of the novel mirror the truth about the race, class and gender discrimination which is the basic concern of the research. In fact, Celie has found in writing a place on her own through which she can express herself without the white masculine trace. They lose their identity in patriarchal society. Womanism recognizes the inherent beauty and strength of Black womanhood and seeks connections and solidarity with Black men. Just learning to really, really love the ordinary – you know, that nice well-made bowl of oatmeal in the morning and walking with my dog – just what is ordinary. As a daughter of a farm worker, to feel just how much they take for granted, the people who are buying their food without thinking about the people who produce it. 11 Black Scholars and Intellectuals Who Influenced Sociology. And I have admiration like so many people. The Color Purple is a breakthrough in black literature as it dramatizes how the black women have been brutally oppressed by black men as well as white patriarchy. The works of Luce Ingary, Julia Kristeva and Judith Butler not only greatly contribute to feminist scholarship but also reconceptualize feminist thought i n increasingly theoretical terms. And I don’t think we want to go back there. Because everything is just shrinking. A woman is not oppressed for a fact that she is simply a woman, instead on what “kind” of woman she [...], The Color Purple is a novel that traces the suffering of black women from gender, racial domination in patriarchy society.
