Happy International Women’s Month (Really) - New art piece inside!

  • Mofe Demuren

Isn't it supposed to be more than a day? It should last for the entire month! Okay, fine, it isn't the point. This message isn't about a temporary, ephemeral call for unity; it's about a neglected necessity. Justice must triumph in order for society to progress. Notice I said JUSTICE, Not Just Us.

It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman

Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

(From Maya Angelou's 'Phenomenal Woman')
