Subject: [IMC-Process] SEATTLE'S RESPONSE TO IMC WOMEN'S PROPOSAL RE
Date: 26 Oct 2003 12:09:38 -0800
This is a formal response of the IMC-Seattle collective to the proposal
the IMC-Womens list.
We are in full support of this proposal. At the last general meeting
we discussed this again for the second time, several people expressed
and inspired they were by the proposal and the fact that it was the
proposal to come from a global working group.
We are also in the more important part of the process and that is
the questions ourselves as an "already existing IMC" in terms of how we
improve issues of gender diversity in the IMC. This has always been a
topic for us and for other IMCs as we struggle to change the dynamics
our own groups to reflect our values and ideals.
Personal note: As someone who has been in the Seattle IMC for 4 years
day), I have seen us go through many different stages. I have been in
IMC when there were more women than men. I have been the only woman at
meetings. I have been a woman who has been silenced by male
numerous meetings where no other person spoke up. I have seen women
empowered by other women being strong. I have been inspired by seeing
quiet women speaking up. I have seen us shifting back and forth along
spectrum. We all have a lot of work to do to create the kind of
where we respect all voices and we don't let the conditioning we've
with dictate how we relate to each other.
Global Internal Discussion Site:
There has only been one response to this proposal and no formal
than the one from Seattle that I can find in the archives. I know that
women have brought these proposals to the women's list. We should get
to the process list so we know which IMCs have been discussing this
Also, can someone from the women's list please give us a deadline for
and can the moderators assist in the process of getting all the
this list to be making sure the proposal is sent back to their local
and responses brought back here. This is what a liaison list is about.
the process list is supposedly our "decision-making space".
