This post is dedicated to the women and girls across the world. It's for the daughters, the sisters, the mothers, the friends and the lovers. It's for those that inspire us; the freedom fighters, the entrepreneurs, the activists, the performers, the leaders. It's for the beautiful women that capture our imagination and ignite our jealousies. It's for the poets and storytellers that sing our lives with their songs. It's for the women who don't have a voice, who aren't allowed to learn, or to vote or to drive or to show their faces. It's for the ones that suffer abuse at the hands of those that should protect them and who silently carry their pain. It's for the women that have been betrayed or lied to and those that have betrayed and lied. It's for those that choose to stand and be counted and for those that quietly take a stand behind closed doors. It's for those that flaunt their sexuality in the name of freedom and those that see modesty as their strength.
But most of all it is for you, and for we, and for me.
We are fearfully and wonderfully made. Too weak to carry heavy weights but strong enough to carry life. As young women, our vitality turns heads and stops traffic, giving way to stretch marks that bare the scars of a fruitful womb. Our tears may flow freely but our courage will never shrink.
Peace & Love to all the woman and lovers of woman across the world, let us celebrate each other, today and forever.
