“Building ourselves from bottom.”
From a young age, women like me realized that the only way to approach a man was through clenched fists and an undying resilience.
Women like me realized that we were our own super heroines and defied every odd that was placed on us by the same people who claimed they were protecting us.
Women like us realized the beauty of working smart and hard so that no man ever said that if it wasn’t for them, we would never wear underwear.
Women like us realized that living in a shitty house, doing menial jobs and moving bottom up was not shameful.
Our stretchmarks and wrinkles were forming and telling our stories.
