Women’s Issues List (I’m sure there’s more)

I wrote the following few posts while listening to/watching the live feed of the Women’s March in DC on 21 January 2017. I wrote it all at once but it seemed to divide itself into separate sub topics or rhythms, so it ended up being multiple poems in one. I will be sharing these in more than one post so it’s not crazy long but once I’ve shared them all feel free to go back over them and read them all together.  Since I was writing this while listening to speakers there are definitely ideas and phrases that inspired me in this. I was sad and kind of upset with myself that I wasn’t able to go Washington DC for this march, or even Toronto because I know how important of an event it is. There were a few reasons I didn’t go but I am so proud that it happened and that so many cities across the world joined in. It’s a sad state things are in right now but seeing so many people coming together for this was so cool and inspiring. I have a lot more to say (and a lot more to learn) about these topics and ideas, and I will most likely revisit them in future writings.
The first thing I wrote was this list, inspired by Kamala Harris’ speech at the Women’s March in DC.
