Wisdom

Lady Wisdom

It is, perhaps, not all that very surprising that the fact or concept of wisdom is considered to be feminine.

 

But is it not surprising that this was recognised and acknowledged by a patriarchal society?

    It’s a pretty masculine trait to refer to good ideas and things we hold dear as feminine – I, for example, often affectionately refer to my motorbike, my most prized possession, as ‘Sadie’ (there’s no deep reasoning behind that name, I’ve just always liked it). So I wouldn’t say it was surprising. I may even go as far as to say it’s expected.

  2. I’ve recently read that to categorise something as feminine meant to label it as alternative or ‘other’.
    Much wisdom is an alternative way of looking at things, especially compared with Greek-derived logic but I’m wondering how this concept applies to Sadie?
