I want to take a moment to thank every woman, man, baby, child, and pet who went along and marched the streets across the UK and the World, this weekend. 🙌
I also would like to thank the famous figures who attended or are spreading the message and raising awareness; as well as the young and elder leaders who are writing and performing empowering, intellectual and intelligent speeches to the masses. Their speeches are enough to evoke belief, feeling and a sense of okayness in the stressful times that we are currently under, politically. It is times like these that we need to unite in solidarity against hate, oppression and the many faults in society.
This weekend, we celebrated the fact that ignorance, fickleness and hatred has not won, isn’t winning and will not win – contrary to what statistics have us believing.
The sexist bigots in society, some of whom have more power than others, may have won an election, but they won’t win the battle nor the war that is the rest of this lifetime.
Remember, there are millions of people across Earth marching for the same reasons: equality, a better life, and a better future.
Parents are taking their children along to these rallies to prove that their children’s generations are voting next. They’ll hopefully make the more logical choices. Others are taking their children along so that they prove a point that they are standing for their future. They want a future for their children that doesn’t involve uncertainty, fear, inequality, and racism, sexism, disabled(ism), religionism, homophobia etc.
Together, when showing a united front, the People can win!
Those who engage in “locker-room talk” aren’t the People’s choice… If they are, I’m sorry to say, #WomensMarch proved otherwise. “A picture paints a thousand words.” Angle or not!
Ladies and gents, if you take anything from this post, take that we are One. We stand together, and we have no choice but to empower one another.
Conversely, we don’t have to march the streets to show solidarity. We can do it via blogging, social-media, spreading the word through face-to-face, over-the-phone discussions or other means.
Women and men are equal until proven… Equal. Let’s not let the fact that the clocks seemingly went back 300 years in November (and then officially yesterday) affect that.
Peace to all!
