Women’s March

January 20, 2018


Of course I stand for the Women’s March. I’m a woman and I want things to change so that life can be safer and better, not only for today but for the generations to come.


When I was a little girl, like children tend to do, I would always ask questions of why? When it came to movies, tv or what I saw in everyday life in front of me. “Why doesn’t the lady do something? Why does she have to ask him if it’s ok to do something? Why can’t she work too? Why can’t he go into the kitchen and get the soda himself? Why is she scared of him seeing her cry?” I was always told, “Because it’s a man’s world Mija.”


Think about that statement… “It’s a man’s world.” Women were not aloud to have opinions, dreams, jobs or were even allowed to go anywhere! I mean, stay in the kitchen and have babies?


There are guys that think it’s funny, but it’s not funny when it’s really YOUR LIFE. I’m not going to lie, I’ve goofed around and have said some stuff like, “Get back in the kitchen woman!” Or “I’m a woman, what do I know?!” Stuff like that. Although I’ve laughed, because it’s ridiculous that things like that were ever said but when people are serious about it… That’s crazy town.


The difference between then and now is that back then, that statement “This is a mans world” was openly said and now, it’s not, but it’s still true. Yes women have made strides in the last few decades but we haven’t gotten far. With the Women’s March & the #MeToo movement that will change.


There are a lot of different issues people are making a stand for in the Women’s March and you don’t have to agree with all of them. Just realize that everyone marching is standing for something to make the world better. How can anyone see bad in that? How can you not want to be a part of it?


I’ve seen some people are get worked up because it’s a WOMAN’S March, but there are men marching in it too. It’s not a “man vs woman” thing. Like I said in my Snap & IG stories post in regards to Haley’s speech, “You don’t have to be a woman to see the message. You just have to be HUMAN to see that someone has suffered and to want to help so that no one else has to.”


Understand, this March, it’s not just for women. It’s the start of a chain of events that will lead to a better future for us all. We need to STAND TOGETHER so we can make strides in ALL inequalities. Everyone on this earth deserves opportunities, safety and happiness. THAT right there is what I am going to stand for. EVERYONE.

Know I want EVERYONE to have the best life possible.


Love Always & Forever,
