women’s rights, specifically

there will be no justice unless

we wake up with the revolution in mind

day after day, in private and in public.

will we act from a place of tenderness and strength

or a place of anger and shame and

what difference does it make?

it amazed me how visceral

the experience of oppression can be,

how disturbing whistleblowing can feel and just

how cleansing liberation truly is.

at the heart of it lies the question of

who we want to be

in the interconnected web of humanity.

but for now, it’s time to turn feminism into that,

which scares those it seeks to disarm

in the ways in which they don’t even expect

from all angles and in all ways.
