At a recent family gathering, there were 3 male and 13 female members of the family.
At the recent Texas Sommelier Conference, 40% of the attendees were women.
In a NY restaurant, there are 19 women and 3 men.
In the picture above, of my family before I was born, there are more females than males.
I come from a female dominated culture.
My mom, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, cousins and nieces have been a source that has made me feel like something I belonged to. I wish my son could feel that, but sadly, times have changed.
So today, I just want to thank those who are still here, those who have been here and passed on, and those coming up in my world who represent that female side of the family I love. That sense of be-longing.
