International Women's Day

Tonight I went to an Eco-Feminist gathering at Ceres.  It was well done and was lots of fun.  The opening acknowledgement of the traditional owners was lovely and the last line got me thinking.
We spoke these words together:
"We acknowledge that we gather in Wurundjeri country and thank and honour the traditional caretakers of this place.
The Spirit of the indigenous women throughout this land, the first people,  never dies. it lies in the rocks and the forest, the rivers and the mountains. It murmurs in the creeks and whispers in the trees. The hearts of these women were formed of the earth that we now walk, and their voice can never be silenced. We are all from a first people."
