Our Manifesto: She Is A Woman Just Like You

 

                                                                                               She is a woman just like you

She cares the way you do
She thinks the way you do
She has a voice just like you
But she cannot speak
Speak against the injustices done to her
Speak against her own people shattering her dreams
Speak against opportunities taken away from her
But she is a woman just like you
Eating dinner in candle light is considered a romance or experience for you
Eating dinner in a candle light is a way of life for her
As there is no electricity in her house
But she is a woman just like you
You pay money to get bottled water, she does too
You may pay it for a reason, when tap water flows in your house
She pays it for a reason too, as there is no tap in her house
But she is a woman just like you
You are surrounded by children; she is surrounded by them too
Her children act the way your children do
The only difference is, your children are mall nourished and her children are malnourished
But she is a woman just like you.
For you, night is considered pleasant
As you dream for a new tomorrow
But for her night, can be wake up to a no tomorrow
She is tortured and abused in front of her kids
A sister like her somewhere succumbs to an acid attack
A daughter like her is slaughtered in front of her own community
With hopes in eyes, she still feels she is a woman just like you
She sees hell on earth every day in her life
But she is still hopeful for a better tomorrow
Her today is bad, but her tomorrow can be good
She is positive
Because she is a woman just like you
We are all children of this beautiful world
Involve the men, educate the community
Give them opportunities which will give them sanity
She needs your support, not your sympathy
Because she is a woman just like you
She wants to explore, she wants to excel
She wants to learn, she wants to live
She has the will, show her the way
Because she is a woman just like me
She is a woman just like you.
