“It’s hard to know what authentic power is; we’ve had so few examples of it. For so long power has been a matter of control and domination, the thing that keeps some people up and others down,
the blood that feeds the hierarchy. The kind of power that women need is not ruthless, controlling, self-serving, domination-seeking power—power without benefit of love. It is not staying up by keeping others down. What we need is a potent, forceful power, yes, but one that is also compassionate, that enables others as well.” (Sue Monk Kidd, Dance of the Dissident Daughter, p 199)
