I Am a Woman And a Warrior

In Mind by BreeLeave a Comment

We teach young women shame. We teach them to cover their skin and cross their legs. To iron out the wrinkles and put makeup over the scars. It takes years as a woman to unlearn what our culture has taught us to be sorry about. So if I can’t trust our society to teach their sons how to treat our daughters, then I will teach our youth less about glass slippers and more about how to shatter glass ceilings. I will not remain complicit in the face of misogyny. I was not born to be subtle. I was raised by a woman who taught me how to be a sword and a shield and I will be on the front line, ready to fight for our future.
