Welcome to Segullah

Lipstick, hairspray, aerials, neon costumes, fishnet stockings, and noise– all things you find in spades at dance competitions. One thing you don’t find much? Men. A dance competition is an estrogen-rich environment, a place where mothers cheer on their daughters, and the few dads who do get dragged to the convention center look one part helpful, one part bored, and one part embarrassed at finding themselves in such a feminine zone.

I’ve spent the day at a dance competition with my two older daughters, and I always leave these events at the end of the day feeling both complete sensory overload and a sense of gratitude that I can belong to a community of women. I am hopeless with a curling iron, and one of the moms stepped in and curled my daughter’s hair, another mom and I swapped adoption stories, and countless women congratulated my girls as they came off stage.

The pieces in the March 2015 issue of Segullah both consider a community of women. Trisha Wheeldon’s “Eating Alone in Hialeah,” first shows the speaker as an outsider among the women in the Florida community where she’s a recent transplant. But a dream and some ice cream change all that, and she finds herself happy to assimilate.

Amy Stewart’s essay “The Moment” is more about what happens in the absence of an easy community of women. Stewart writes about losing her mother at the age of twelve, and how that loss has continued to shape her as she has grown into womanhood and motherhood without such an important relationship to sustain her.

We hope that your community of women is strong, and that you enjoy this issue of Segullah.
