Another day in another year
As violence against women endures
Men still hurt women
Raping them
Beating pregnant women to death
Killing female journalists
Cutting their body parts
And more

How shall I celebrate my day?
Should I observe it with awards
For successful women?
Or sit with the victims of violence?
Should I call for justice?
What should I do?

I can write
Describe my sadness
Advocate for women
Living in my country
Hope that my words and stories are heard
That one day soon violence will decrease
This is my message
