We are strong
You are not as bright
You will not manage……
You are not a boy
You are a girl…….
You are supposed to do your chores
You are not supposed to play until your chores are done.
These are the voices I heard growing up.
The voice within me kept me going
I knew that one day I would become somebody
I knew that carrying negativism with me was no good
I knew that I would be the change for the rest
And today I fight for the girl child
I fight for gender equality
I fight against gender based violence
I have a dream………….
That one day women shall be free
Free from all injustices
That is the world I know will one day come to pass….
I continue in this noble fight for the girls and women who have no hope
I AM WITH YOU MY SISTERS. WE SHALL OVERCOME. WE ARE STRONG
