#IWD2021: All that we Choose to Challenge

by MaryRaphael Ajayi

“A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes changes. So let’s choose to challenge.”

To a world that’s partial and bereft of total inclusivity for women to soar like the other gender.

To a world that’s intentionally unacceptable to our needs and voices to echo and re-echo

To a world that pretends to care and see us

To a world where our pride and privileges are stamped on

To a world where our rights and worth are believed unworthy of recognition

To a world that doesn’t see us as we truly are

To a world that forcefully extradite us and make us invisible on our paths to making giant strides

To a world that coerce us to accept the standards

To a world that subtly shades our pedigree and disparages us

To a world that believes our rights begins and ends in the oda room and in home making alone

To a world that believes we can only stand tall and succeed on the shoulders of patriarchal norms

An ode to the society that doesn’t believe in gender equality and in our strengths

We are here to stay and challenge the norms that doesn’t see us and include us

We are here to change the narratives and make our dreams believable and realistic

We are done with your pretence to accept and believe in us

We choose to challenge gender bias and stereotypes.

We choose to challenge the male dominated business culture

We choose to challenge the strengths in our abilities

We choose to challenge the strategies and structures that side-lines us

We choose to challenge your incorrigible norms!

We choose to challenge your pretence, manipulation and imposition!

We choose to challenge to be seen, heard and matter in all major board rooms

We choose to do better for coming generations to have a better place in the world

We have been imprisoned by your brutality long enough

Our dreams are VALID!

Our strengths are VALID!!

Our Love is VALID!

We are WOMEN- we MADE You!

Happy International Women’s Day!

Welcome to the CHANGE we BIRTH!
