You ask what I want in this world?
More than anything else?
Well it is what most women would want also,
I want there to be a higher likelihood that we die of disease than by the hands of a man,
I want all girls to have the same opportunity of education as boys,
I want us to not be viewed as objects of pleasure but rather as human beings,
I want us to be in charge of our own bodies and not be judged by our choices,
I want us to have the same pay as a man with the same job,
I want us to not be expected to have kids and give up our careers,
I want to stop being told what I can do to prevent being raped and instead have boys taught not to rape,
I want to go to college and not be worried of assault when all I want to do is help and learn,
I want us to be taken seriously and not cast aside as silly little girls,
I want there to be no “Women Authors section” in a book store,
I want us to have the same amount of positions in power as men,
I want not a single woman to be used only for her body for her entire life,
I want men to stop objectifying girls younger than thirteen,
I want us to be able to walk down the street without getting cat calls or being told to smile,
I want hate crimes against females around the world to stop,
I want rapists to be treated with the same punishment in court as a murderer would be,
I want us to have leadership positions and not be called “bossy” or a “bitch”.
I want so much for us,
But we all have so far to go.
