Time for a post, time for a post.
It’s Women’s History Month…no joke
the most recent fight is about looking up a woman’s dress.
What a mess
that in this year, 2014
is this what we have to glean?
The emphasis should be on curing disease, stopping repression
while mentoring more, encouraging education.
Please teach our young women in the world,
to do the brilliant, to be decisive, and to unfurl
the power of her birthright to be more than “just a girl.”
We must encourage them to be smart, to accomplish and to dare
all those imbeciles out there.
Journal prompt: Write about women’s issues. Do you feel we have made progress in the year 2014? What are your thoughts about personal privacy?
