Dear Women Around the World,

Dear Women Around the World,

There are times when no one will believe in you,

Times when your strength is tested more than your knowledge,

Strength that lies in your mind, and not your muscles.

You will feel discouraged not by the aching in your body,

But by the weighed down sensation of your spirit by those who doubt your fire.

Survivors is what we will be called when faced with injustice,

Warriors is what the world will deem us,

As we band together to say #MeToo and Time's Up.

You are one in a million, and one of millions who will fight for equality and justice,

At home, at work, in the streets, and in the classroom,

You will be joined by women like me, who will never give up.

That is my promise.

Caitlin Sherman
