Just A Thought…

So the World celebrated The International Women’s Day yesterday – which is a good thing, don’t get me wrong – but, what happens today?

Do we go back to the shadows where women are beaten, downtrodden, objectified, maligned et cetera, et cetera?

Yesterday, this thought played in my mind all day.

The thought played in my mind that right as we speak, there’s a woman somewhere being raped, pummelled into the ground from manly fists, railroaded into sexual slavery and all unsavoury thoughts you can think of.

I am tired of societies false platitudes and putting band-aids on sore wounds.

We as a people must continue to raise strong women. Women who rise above adversity to say no. Women who call bullshit what it is. ¬†Women who know themselves and love themselves. Women who would make a difference to their progeny and generations to come…

This is not about 1 day. It’s about a lifetime!

I am every woman. A survivor by many miles. I don’t need a day to tell me who I am ‘cos I already know who I am.

My question is, does society truly care to know?
