Power in the dark

In this film shared by Neighbours International, Beth Mount invites us to “see in the dark”.

Beth argues that focused attention can help us see how and why dominant systems confine people to specialized and segregated routines and roles. Then we can act to break the patterns and resist the forces that smother possibility.
