I would like to look at the biblical story of Mary and Martha as a source of information-case study.
The presenting issues seems to be gender tensions, roles and empowerment. underlying issue seems to be need for attention, recognition. As the conflict becomes a dispute, help, blame and a request for arbirtation is put on the table. The response would seem to be insensitive, and judgemental--escallating the conflict. Yet it suggest clarity is the one helpful way forward.
Interested in comments. Catherine.
