From "To Be of Use" by Marge Piercy

The pitcher cries for water to carry
and a person for work that is real.

What is Gender Equity?

We are still dividing life up into things that girls and women are supposedly good at, and others that boys and men are supposedly good at. As a result, each sex finds parts of life off limits. Gender equity is the effort to stretch the limits so that everyone can experience life to the fullest.
