One of the by-products of this culture was the lack of exploration of a woman's preference, pleasure, and freedom when it comes to sex. This week in our confession session, we take on a small slice of that patriarchal pie by examining the use and implications of the word “hoe” on women - whether the word should be eradicated or the negative connotation challenged.
