For all the times… (International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women)

For all the times we have chosen to wear trousers instead of a skirt…

For all the times we wore low boots instead of high heels…

For all the times we have changed a seat on the bus…

For all the times we picked up the pace…

For all the times we went home before everyone else, not wanting to ask anyone for a ride…

…or for all the times we had to take a taxi instead…

For all the times we have chosen the long way to avoid an isolated or dark park…

For all the times we let ourselves be manipulated, lied, betrayed, because “it was for our sake”…

For all the times we said “yes”, but inside we were screaming “no”…

For all the times when, even having said “no”, it wasn’t enough…

We can be stronger… WE MUST.
