“The United Nations

Development Fund for Women

estimates that at least

one of every three women globally

will be beaten, raped or otherwise

abused during her lifetime.

-futureswithoutviolence.org

 

1 billion women &

men who feel that

violence against women

across the world has to end

will go on strike

this coming

February 14th, 2013.

 

& this writer will be standing

in vigilant solidarity

in remembrance of

my best friend in

high school whose

face had been smashed

through a glass door &

then was forced by the same

man to drive into a house

after he downed acid &

just didn’t give a

fuck.

 

& this writer will be standing

in vigilant solidarity

in remembrance of

my first crush whose

boyfriend raped her, beat her,

forcing her to live in

constant fear even after she

put a restraining order on him,

finally moving across the country

to find freedom.

 

& this writer will be standing

in vigilant solidarity

in remembrance of my first

girlfriend who revealed later

that she had lost her virginity

to a rape at a party in which

all the fucks in her hick small

town had pointed the finger

at her, saying that “she had

asked for it”---a rape that

her own mother (who suffered

at the hand of her crazy

pentacostal loon husband)

did nothing about when she

found out what had happened

to her daughter---

nothing at all.

 

thanks to Eve Ensler, we

will have the opportunity,

ALL OF US, this coming

February, to RISE UP &

SAY ENOUGH!

 

will you be with us?
