Shelma Jun is an unapologetic force to be reckoned with, and she's put more thought than most of us into this feminist movement that is rocking the climbing world. To be honest, while I've put a ton of thought into it myself, much of it was in the form of denial. When that began to change, and I opened by eyes a little, I knew I had to have a conversation with Shelma. I'm extremely happy that she was willing to sit down with me and struggle through a tough, but important conversation.
Some of you will agree. Some of you won't. That's ok. What's important is that we start the conversation, on many levels, and keep it going.
I've fucked up many times. I'll fuck up more. That's about all that I'm sure of.
That, and that I'll always make an effort to realize that I don't need to have all the answers.
