Do you remember the first time you told someone off because they were perpetuating oppression? The first time you signed a petition, went to a feminist potluck, joined a rally or a protest? It takes a lot of guts to speak out against oppression, whether it’s sexism, racism, classism, ableism, xenophobia, homophobia, transphobia…
It may not always seem worth it, and you have to pick your battles so you don’t burn yourself out, and you have to remember to take care of yourself… but there’s such important work to be done in order to dismantle the hegemonic patriarchy. 
Don’t be silent. Don’t be afraid any longer. Rise up! Know your rights and fight for them! Let your beautiful voice be heard! - yeas
