Sisters (i.e., all people who identify as women and girls), I'm calling for a protective shield to be put around women of color. In public spaces, in intimate settings, in the workplace, in all places.
The severe abuse women have faced for centuries has created separation and self preservation (particularly, from those who have the resources to live a more protected life). If we shift our habits from self protection to communal strength, we will be stronger.
Seeing every female as a sister is the first step. All women around the world are connected by an unexplainable force. It's in our intuition, it's in our ability to create life, it's in our magnetism. It's 100 million times more powerful than racism, weapons and bigotry. Currently, we're disconnected and cannot see the magnitude of this force.
Let's reconnect and use our communal strength to end violence against the most targeted, women of color. In doing so, we end violence against all women and, therefore, all life.
