Women’s Day…

TODAY WE CELEBRATE
INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY
COMMEMORATED ANNUALLY ON MARCH 8TH
TO MEMORIALIZE THE ACHIEVEMENTS THAT WE’VE MADE
GET OUR BIG UPS, RECOGNITIONS, AND ACCOLADES
WE ARE OFTEN OVERLOOKED, WITHOUT AWARDS AND PRAISE
GENDER EQUALITY WE DEMAND, AND WHAT WE PROCLAIM
 OVERALL, PARITY WE COMMAND, THIS SHOULDN’T BE A DEBATE
THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA SOCIETY SHOULD STIPULATE
FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATIONS WE MUST ELIMINATE
VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN WE SHOULD OBLITERATE
THERE SHOULD BE A MANDATE 
ALL GIRLS MUST BE SCHOOLED AND WE MUST EDUCATE
 WE ARE WORLD LEADERS, SENATORS, PRIME MINISTERS
DOCTORS, LAWYERS, AND RELIGIOUS PREACHERS 
WE ARE BUSINESS OWNERS, ENGINEERS, AND TEACHERS
POLICE, NURSES, AND ACADEMICS WITH DEGREES
OTHER PROFESSIONALS WITH VARIED EXPERTISE
WE ARE DAUGHTERS, SISTERS, WIVES, AND FRIENDS
WE ARE BEARERS OF CHILDREN
WE ARE COURAGEOUS, AMBITIOUS, AND WE ARE DRIVEN
WE ARE FEMALES, WE ARE GIRLS, WE ARE WOMEN
