We will be the one* standing next to you, demanding the. BEST for our children. WHEN YOUR LAND IS BEING TAKEN AWAY FROM YOUafter your man has met death, we will be the ones standing beside you denying the tax collector the inhert- penalty, which will be exacted only &rom you. WHEN OPPORTUNITIES ARE DENIED TO VOU, and your position in work remains the same, we will be the one* standing with you, showing your qualifications to all, and fighting £or equal employment opportunity lor you. WHEN YOU HAVE SPENT HALF A LIFETIME with a man who has left you with nothing, because he no longer sees your beauty or talents, we will be the ones fight- ing for benefits and training so you can get a job to sustain yourself. We 'will be the ones in front of you with open arms. WHEN YOU AND VOUR CHJLVREN HAl/E BEEW BEATEN, left with nowhere to turn, we'll be the ones giving refuge in homes and centers we've established. We'll be the ones fighting for more them, because we can't bear to turn you away. We'll be the ones assuring you of your own worth, and we'll be helping you regain your dignity. We will be the one* embracing you when you enter, and we will be the ones in back of you, watching you walk away proud and whole. WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN RAPED AND TOLD IT WAS YOUR FAULT, we'll be the ones supporting you in the courtrooms, seeking justice for us all. We'll be the one* listening to your rage at the violation done to you. We will be the one* standing in ^ront o^ you with open heart. WHEN VOU CAN STANV IT MO LONGER; WHEN THE SUPPRESSION IS TOO MUCH; when you've had all you can take, we will be the ones watting foryou with open minds. We will be the falame igniting the spirit* lost over thousands of years. We are the ones with tear-stained faces and weeping hearts, asking freedom firom injustices. And we are strong enough to lend you our aid, for our strength and determination are. endless. WE ARE VOUR SISTERS, and we are Feminists.
