I have listened and seen the effect of patriarchy and oppression on women's and girls lives. I've learned a lot from women around the world whom I've asked among many things, "what do you like most about being a woman" and, "if you were a man what would you do." Those very things they would do if they were a man, I want for them now. The same status, access, privilege and rights. I long for a world where women don't feel they are nothing more than a 4 legged donkey or living like a prisoner. I want unpaid reproductive work to be acknowledged, recognized and honored for the power in carrying this planet. I am so inspired by the vision and mission of World Pulse to help bring about a more just, equitable, and kind world for all.
