She looks for the truth to be heard
by the closed eyes and closed minds around her.
She works to show their duplicity, the inequity of it all.
Minds fight back, positions of power abused.
She’s just a token woman in their mind, after all.
An image so they can pretend they are fair.
Although they are not… nor are they just.
But still, she persisted.
For all the women who find they face uphill battles for what is good, fair, and right. Don’t give up!
