In This Patriarchal Society, Where Is My Voice?

Posted: August 1, 2020

“Eclectic, interesting…will fill you with hope and resolve!” – Pick up our new short story collection, Women.Mutiny

YES, I am a Girl, I am a Women, I am a fighter, but, where is my “VOICE”?…Where is my voice lost?

Where is my “VOICE?
To complain, To ask for my rights
To marry my choice, To demand my education

Where is my “VOICE”
In decision making, In dissenting
In disapproving, In this patriarchal society

Where is my voice,
To be first in the queue of life,
To be a hero within my gender,
To be a part of this world in every dimension of life,
To be an equal partner in every relation of mine

Where is my Voice
To tell the pain I carry throughout my life
To tell the scars of every night
To tell my story as a daughter, as a wife, as a mother and so on.

YES
I am a Girl, I am a Women,
I am a fighter
But, Where is my “VOICE”?
