A Woman’s Story

Ahna, 12A

Women in labour, women at home, women on the streets and even women who are stuck cleaning toilets. This goes out to all the hidden faces, to all the known faces, every single one of your souls matter.

So hush my dear and sit down; this lullaby goes out to you. Yes, you, who work day and night at home, taking care of your daily needs as a housewife — I’m proud of you. Yes, this is for those who work long hours at end and come back home for no rest and only to face work once again — I’m proud of you. This goes out for all of you who clean our toilets, and pick up our trash on the streets — I’m proud of you.

This goes out to all of you who do nothing but try to make the world an easier place for us to live, yet are so unappreciated, your handiwork unseen by society. Shamed for who you are. For those who are told, “You are a woman so you’re weak,” or “you are a woman so this is not something you can do,” or “you are a woman so you can’t be a leader.”

So let me just tell you this. You are a woman, so you are strong, You are a woman, so you can do this, You are a woman and you are a leader. Society should be ashamed for their underestimation.

Be proud to be a woman, because women are warriors fighting society’s standards every day and night. So as women we shall stand and take our stance; we shall show them our worth, because we are women, and this is our story.
