#istandwithher: orange the world

Today, I stand with her, she who was regarded as a person of no consequences nor importance, on the basis of sex. Today, I stand with her, she whom the world conspired to deliberately deny her of her place in it, on the basis of sex.

Today, I stand with her, whose childhood was stolen from her by lecherous men without discipline and self-control, men who prey on her innocence, nativity and vulnerability, on the basis of sex. Today, I stand with her, who was entrusted upon her the most important job in the world without any education, training, preparation or experience, on the basis of sex.

Today, I stand with her whose dreams were stolen, her ambitions shattered, and her potentials destroyed, on the basis of sex. Today, I stand with her she who live with coercion and control and forced into a life she neither wanted nor bargained for, on the basis of sex.

Today, I stand with her, she who sacrifices everything, and makes all the compromises without ever getting an acknowledgement for them, on the basis of sex. Today, I stand with her, she who never lived, but merely existed so that others could live, on the basis of sex.

Today, I stand with her, she whom has had to learn to multitask and work ten times harder to get only half of what she deserves, on the basis of sex. Today, I stand with her, she who was manipulated into enduring and accepting abuse from those who should protect her, on the basis of sex. Today, I stand with her she whose efforts, contributions and value is often neglected and unappreciated, not because they are of no value, but on the basis of sex.

Today, I stand with her because we all have to stand up with her, and for her. Because it is only by standing together that we can end the abuse, the bias, the inequality, the discrimination, the injustitce, the inhumanity, the violations, the deprivations, and the stigma meted on her, on the basis of sex.

Today, I stand with her because it is only by standing together that we can make change happen, give her a life, not existance, make her voice and cries heard and taken with significance, make her dreams and existence valid, amplify the demands for her rights as one of the most important creations on the planet.

Today, I stand with her, she who brings forth life, and i pledge to stand with her, for as long as I breath.

Because I AM HER. We all are HER.
