Yesterday women and girls were once again raising their voices for all females in the Global Citizen Festival in New York City. Beyoncé, Michelle Obama, and Malala Yousafzai were among the women there, speaking for millions of girls not being offered education or equal rights; as well as ending global poverty.
It is a shame that in 2015 we still have to fight for our rights, it’s a shame that we are not seen as equal, and it’s a shame that we still need to prove our strength against men; the men who have caused war, after war; the men who don’t know how to deal with millions of people and children without education and going hungry. The same men in charge, who have millions while other people, have nothing.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not speaking about all men but there are a lot that still think it’s a man’s world and women belong in the house. It’s just those who have that horrible ego, those that still think that they rule, and are horrible at it and just make things worse. I have some names I could say, but I’m sure you can all think of a few too.
All of these men in power make some women think that we need to rise to their level of power hunger to get were we want to be. But this is not the way to make a difference. This is not the way to make the world a better place, to stop wars, to end world hunger, to get equal education for everyone.
Girls, women; we don’t need to sink down to their level; we need to make them rise up to our level. We are stronger, we put them in this world, our world; lets not teach them to take it down. They need to be taught to take care of it and make it better, for everyone
As the great Queen B says: Girls, we run the world. We put them into our world, let’s show them who’s boss and make it a better world for everyone.
I know we can do it but we can’t be afraid.
