I was brought up in a world where women are silenced. We were taught to be quiet, to shrink ourselves, make ourselves smaller. The violence of the system we live in has overpowered us and we let it happen — until we didn’t.
We are here, standing tall on the shoulders of our ancestor angels. They have whispered in our ears take up the space that is rightfully yours. The whispers became louder, inspiring our voices to grow stronger. Continuing this beautiful train reaction; giving courage to others to speak up.
The strength of a woman is limitless. Our vulnerability is our power, our rage is our source and our words turn into healing, solidarities and communities.
We are a chorus of voices that will not be silenced.
