Today we marched. We marched in solidarity for the women and men of America, for the protection of women’s rights, human rights. We marched for the world we will leave our children.
For a world where its okay to be a woman and stand up for what you believe in. Where it’s okay to call yourself a feminist. Where no means no, and rape isn’t a joke. A world in which boys and girls love their bodies whatever the size, shape, colour or ability. Where boys can have long hair, talk about their feelings and cry. And girls speak out, play sport and get angry. Where children are children and pink and blue are just colours. For a world that recognises the worth of women and mothers. For reproductive choice and sexual freedom. A world full of female leaders, sporting heroes, scientists and visionary thinkers. Full of male ballet dancers, birth workers and stay at home fathers. For a world where we don’t have to keep fighting for equality.
We marched for a world under threat. For women all over the world oppressed, discriminated against and marginalised. For girls and boys, and their future.
We marched for Bee.
