A Writing Journey

Sexism

I overheard a conversation a couple of weeks ago and it really upset me. But rather than get in a fight with the people having the conversation, I wrote this instead.

Your sexist beliefs

Astound me.

How can you,

Or anyone,

Be so foolish?

Ah, you want your women

Quiet, withdrawn –

A toy for when you’re frisky.

Who are you

To say what I should be?

I will not bow

To your ignorance.

I will not stoop

To letting a misogynist rule me.

I am a woman

And I am strong.

I will not give in.

I will fight you every day

To earn and keep my rights.

I will fight you

Because you are wrong.

I am a woman and

I am a person.

I have rights and

I will keep them.

Take care, fellow travelers
