We can't make it about them, it IS about them. That IS the current status quo. I am more focused on getting power and influence. Right now it doesn't matter if I speak, no one listens or thinks I'm worth listening to.

You are though, GC spaces wouldn't exist otherwise if our thoughts weren't important or worth listening to. But hitching their validity and power on whether men accept it isn't the right way to go imo. I would rather hear women speak than have our thoughts filtered through men and their view of us.

But aren't women still speaking in this case? The topic might change, but they are still speaking. I want women to be heard, I don't care what they say, so long as it helps other women and is heard.
