Ofwomen

From the dry sand of the Sahara Dessert,

To the mountain tops of Kamet —

Women have been underprivileged.



From the river valleys of the Eastern Alps ,

To the Chin Hills of Asia-

Women have been deprived.



From the fishes in the Crockery Lake of Ottawa,

To the wintery leaves of the Boreal forest in Quebec ,

Women have been isolated.



Asperity has paved way for feminist political activists - -

To vindicate—

contract and property,

A women’s rights to bodily integrity and autonomy,

Protection from domestic violence,

In hopes of,

Equality.



From the asphalt roads of Maine ,

To the city lights of New York ,

Women acquire the legals rights

to be the voice of an unspoken

s.h.a.p.e--

spirit, heart, adventure, power and existence,

because we are women born

ofwomen.
