To All Women

“The elders, the curanderas, the suffragettes, the midwives of children and art and culture,

the ones we call slut and Saint and CEO —


all with a voice to say:

We will fund it ourselves.

It’s better when it’s beautiful.

No means no.

I see you, and I love what I see.

Come, rest.

and then… Let’s dance.

We’re in this together,

all with a voice to say:

Feelings are facts.

Trust is a milestone

And Compassion is a strategy.

And that is the most powerful possible Yes a woman can give.”
