The Blazing

A poem I wrote for International Women’s Day.

I couldn’t be prouder to be a woman. We hold up the world. We are still far from equality for women, as we are for all the marginalised. I choose education & action in all areas – starting with my own on both fronts. I choose to call out prejudice, to promote love over hate, to call out sexism & to act against gender stereotyping. We can make a change. Daughter, sister, mother, child – woman you are amazing.✌️#InternationalWomensDay #InternationalWomensDay2017 #IWD2017 #BeBoldForChange #genderequality #women #everydaysexism
