If you want to use any of this material contact me and there is a very good chance I will say YES.
However, if you just cut and paste into your own blog or whatever and pass it off as your own then there's a very good chance I will find out. Don't fall into the trap of thinking the internet is so vast and expanding so fast (note the fancy internal rhyme)] that no one will know.

Ah ha, big question that I have grappled with for years….thanks, Bridget Whelan.
And thank you Mira for reblogging
This is an interesting thought, Bridget. My honest opinion is that I don’t think men do feel threatened by women. I think men don’t see the world like that at all.
Hmm think you may have a point, but fear of being laughed at is real for some men, don’t you think? Look at how defensive Donal Trump’s behaviour is and how he over compensates…anything he does is better, bigger, just a whole lot more than anyone else has done in the history of the world…
In the 25 years since Atwood delivered the lecture, much has changed in our perception of gender relationship. Would she still offer the same premise? That’s something I’ll chew over today. . . Thanks Bridget.
Thanks for coming by. I do wonder if the core issues have altered much since 1992 Certainly, more women have had the opportunity to lead succesful careers in public life and in business, but are the odds still stacked against them? Are they still subjected to physical and verbal abuse in the work place because of gender? Has there been a reduction in domestic abuse? My perception is that many of the gener-related challenges a young woman faced in the early 90s haven’t changed that much in the intervening years, but do come back and discuss. Was there a major change yopu had in mind?
Map is not the territory.
Uh, ok….no, you’re going to have unpack that for me.
