The rest of the developed world is just going to have to accept that if they want to move forward on anything, they just have to do it.

I think the G7 relies, and has relied too heavily on the US leadership in the past, and it's just not going to happen right now - the GOP is very "stay the course or regress" at the moment, and Trump himself is more interested in playing to his base and distracting from scandal than anything at the moment. His strategy of "well I'll just take my ball and go home" is has to lead to the rest of the world moving on without him, or we will literally get nowhere - it's not worth any political capital to try and convince the current administration of anything.

I'm happy to send anyone the pdf of my workshop if you know a woman who feels invisible and wants to build confidence. There was one man, a Chemistry Department Head at a university who came because he wanted to build the confidence of women in his department. He found it personally valuable too, so you don't have to be a grrlski.

Today I'm working on another workshop on communicating nondefensively and waiting waiting waiting waiting for bf's flight back from Israel/Palestine - four more hours.
