Hey lovelies 💕,
I always need to share something on this important day: 8 March. Today it’s International Women’s Day. I find it important that we all think of how women are treated in the world. Even if you live in a developed country like I do, women are still being raped, discriminated or sexual harrast. It can happen in any country on this world. There’s still not 100% equality between women and men even though it’s better than in the past. It also depends on where you are in the world. In some countries women still aren’t able to go to school or travel alone. I see women getting murdered or raped in Spanish news often. There’s still so much to do so that we can feel save on the streets.
Last year, I was in Spain with my mother and went to the first feminist strike in Spain. It was one of the best experiences in my life. That march completely made me change the way I thought of sisterhood. I saw women being united, felt loved and soooo strong. I even made a friend which was amazing. It always feel like we have to compare with other women when it’s just so important to all support each other so that we can have equal rights. This year there’s again a feminist strike in Spain and I’m so sad I can’t be there. If you want to check that post and have an impression of that day you can go to this post.
In this post I want to share a poem I made and recorded via video. I find it important to write about it. I’m a proud feminist! 💪♀️💜👭 I will forever support human rights and equality of women and men.
This is the spoken poetry video:
This is the same poem but then written:
International Women’s Day 💜
Today it’s International Women’s Day
This date is important every day not only just today
I’m a feminist by heart
Being a feminist means equal rights for women and men
It doesn’t mean that one gender has the power over one
It just means that there’s equality and freedom to be ourselves
It means to have the same human rights
Women are still discriminated, being raped and have a high rate of being murdered
What do we want?
We want to feel safe when we walk down the streets
We don’t want men catcalling us and making us feel uncomfortable
We don’t want that society always blames us for being raped because of what we were wearing or what we were doing
We want to love ourselves and feel free in our bodies
We want to be less afraid of something happening to us
We want to feel protected by the law
All we want is that society treats us with respect, understanding and love
Is that too much to ask for?
I’m sure we can all change the world, the moment we speak up about it
We’ll not be silenced anymore
Our time has come
We are not alone
We are all in this together! 💪
Together we will create a world were women and men can live in harmony, peace and love for the rest of their lives
Yes we can! ❤️💪
Thank you all for reading this blog post and for watching my video. Did you like my poem? Are you also a proud feminist? Did you ever go to a demonstration or march on International Women’s Day? Let me know in the comments. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.
Much love 💕,
