"Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people"

A woman is defined by the shape of her body,

Or the beauty of her face.

Treated different as opposed to a man,

And helped if she walks at a fast pace.

So why am I not treated differently,

Because of my gender or looks.

Why am I not looked at funny when instead of magazines, I read books.

Is it because I decide I won't take it,

And speak up when I feel inferior?

And refuse to be treated differently,

Just because of my exterior?

And because I know the truth,

That I am not just a doll.

I want to read challenging books,

Rather than go to the mall.

I don't wear tons of make-up to look pretty,

And starve myself to be thin,

Because being a woman is more than that,

We're not as simple minded as men.

Whatever make US happy,

We're not built to look good in small sweaters,

Simply put, anything a man can do,

A woman can do ten times better.

This poem really says it all. Women are definetely degraded way too much, words can't even describe it. Of course...yours can. Hopefully I'll see this poem in the magazine. Great job and keep up the creativity!
