Im proud to be a woman.

Today, we celebrate the women of the today and the women before us.

Being a woman, especially at my age and with my ethnicity, is both rewarding and difficult for me. I look around me and I see both love and hate. Society has always viewed women negatively. Still today, many struggle with acknowledging women for the amazing human beings that they are. I’m only 15 years old, and yet I am aware of everything that is going on in this world, even politics. High school boys aren’t the greatest example for gentlemen, for they’re still quite immature. It has always been difficult to grow up in this society, where stereotypes are unrealistic and where women are treated like trash and objects. We are unique, different from each other, we are people, we are your mothers, we are your sisters, and without us, none of you would be here today.

 

“There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish.”

-Michelle Obama

“I want every girl on the planet to have the same kind of opportunities thatI’ve had, and that my daughters are having, to fulfill their potential and pursue their dreams.”

-Michelle Obama

“Your place in the world and the younger women who will come after you is determined on how you utilized your power.

-Geena Rocero

“Think women want freedom. They want to be empowered. The want hope. They want love; they want all the things that I want, and I’m not afraid to say those things and act on them.”

-Rihanna

“Passion is the bridge that takes you from pain to change.”

-Frida Kahlo

“This is something we can practice every day – women sticking up for other women, choosing to protect and celebrate each other instead of competing or criticizing one another.”

-Amal Clooney

 

Women are beautiful. We stick together, we love each other. We are powerful and strong, we are worthy, we are people, we are equal, we are human. We won’t rest until we get what we deserve, equality. The future is female, the time is now. Wether you are a woman, or a man, or neither, respect us. Respect yourselves.
