Caveman

“Can you write something about our successes
in gender mainstreaming?” asks the boss.

“Sure,” I say.

I don’t know what gender mainstreaming is.
I have to look it up.

Integrating a gender perspective into the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies, regulatory measures and spending programmes.

I re-read the sentence several times.

Sometimes I wonder
if I wouldn’t have been happier
as a caveman.
