Sexism is an everyday thing for most women. Yet, they live, love, and laugh, despite everything that they face just because of their gender.
My bare legs provoke you
Because of my gender.
My being in the world after sunset disturbs you
My going out with friends raises your eyebrows
My uninhibited presence challenges you
My freedom disturbs you
My existence at par with you perturbs you
My power threatens you
I live, I laugh, I fight, I win, I create, I love, I evolve, I embrace
continue to compete with me
Because of my gender
And somewhere, you stopped evolving
Because of your gender.
