I raise up my voice—not so I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard...we cannot succeed when half of us are held back." ―Malala Yousafzai
Being women often makes our voices less - less important, less valid, less significant.
I believe it is our womanhood that gives us strength. Our mothers. Our grandmothers. Those women that came before us and taught us how to be strong in a society that told us we were weaker. I lean on my ancestry and my womanhood for strength everyday - for it is not a point or weakness, but rather a place of power.
