What Color Do I Wear Today?

What color do I wear today?

I wear the color of every woman who has been forced into the corner of a difficult decision.

I wear the color of every woman who has inadequate resources for any of her needs.

I wear the color of every woman who has unknowingly looked danger in the eye.

I wear the color of every woman whose education has failed her, not knowing her rights or options.

I wear the color of every woman who has been shamed, blamed, & marginalized.

I wear the color of every woman whose pregnancy is treated as illness needing cure.

I wear the color of every woman who has had enough of patriarchal governance.

I wear the color of every woman who is treated as a valuable vote rather than a valuable person.
