I stand up for women
everywhere
For my Mothers
Sisters
Friends
For MYSELF

Rape culture
Is real
Dangerous
Sickening
Damaging
And deadly.

I’ve been date raped.
Almost every women I know
Has a story.
This culture teaches
Objectification
Sexual slavery
To our own bodies.
To other’s leering eyes

Together we rise!

Sisters hold each other
Defend each other
Protect each other
Say no more!
You are not an object.
Your worth doesn’t lie
Inbetween your thighs
No more!
Let us
Together demand
This culture must die

Let us ask and demand
Others honor
Our boundaries
Our bodies
Our minds

Together we rise!

Let us build a sisterhood
That protects
And connects.
Let us not tear
Each other down.

Amazon rising!
Let us unequivocally say
NO MORE!
NOT THIS WAY!
OUR BODIES
ARE NOT YOUR PLAY THINGS!
