We are One, We are Strong


Women’s rights are human rights.

You may have suppressed our feelings,

You may have suppressed our voice,

You may have deprived us of our preferences,

You may have deprived us of our rights,

But women’s rights are human rights.

Violence against us isn’t cultural,

Violence against us is criminal,

Violence against us is pervasive,

Violence against us is a pandemic,

We will not be manipulated,

We will not be afflicted.

We want the oppressors prosecuted,

We want the tormentors persecuted,

We want the abusers tyrannized,

We want the bullies victimized,

We want to know we’re not alone,

We want to know you’ve got our back.

We may look feeble but we’re strong,

We have the strength to achieve what we desire,

We know equity can’t come immediately,

We know it has to be fought for,

That’s why we speak with our heads held high,

‘Treat us right’, because women’s rights are human rights.
