“I march because I realize that my society is messed up, it’s time to let them realize that women’s rights are not a joke.”

About Me

when I grow up, my family let me through that we are feminist or we were a family that respects women, because we are more women than men. Now I realized that we were everything but feminist, my cousins laugh and make jokes about rape or they are against the abortion because they think it’s not right for the ‘baby’. Also they are homophobic so the situation get really complicated.

Sadly I open my eyes when I knew than my cousin was sexually abused and she told us using a social network. After that I saw how my males cousins continued their jokes, or just saying that it’s not a big deal.

I don’t know if they know all of the story but it’s not the point.
