Perspectives Matter
September 30, 2018 @ 3:01 PM by: Richard Steinecke

It was a pretty small dust up, as these things go. A male community member asked for a bunch of small plastic bags to hold his fruit and vegetables. A female volunteer wanted him to combine some of the fruit and vegetables into a few bags to save money and the environment. I was in the other room. A male volunteer came up to me and said that our female volunteer was being hard on a community member and was making the situation worse. I was encouraged to take steps to support the community member. Shortly thereafter another female volunteer came up to me and said that the community member was giving our female volunteer a hard time. I was encouraged to take steps to support the female volunteer. Perspectives matter. This is not the Kavanaugh hearings, but gender has a significant impact on how we perceive the same information in many, many situations.
