International women Day , by Carro Djupsjö, edit Nicola Buttler
WHEN THEY GO LOW, WE GO HIGH
This is for the girls who are told they can’t.
For the girls who’ve been told they can’t spin, can’t ollie,
can’t this, can’t that.
Why should we support you?
Why should we recognize your passion, your sacrifice, your dedication?
For the girls who always have to ride last.
This is for the girls who know that riding like a guy is NOT a compliment.
For the girls who know what it feels like to be forgotten and left out.
For the girls who don’t know what’s possible,
And for the girls who do.
This is for the girls who are pushing boundaries
and breaking barriers.
For the girls who have been objectified and reduced to… a body part.
This is for the girls who will shape the next generation.
For the girls who realize it’s time to Change. The. Conversation.
Your insecurity does not bother us and it won’t stop us.
For the girls who will not apologize and, against all odds, will overcome your judgment.
We don’t need permission to change the world.
So remember girls…
When they go low, we go HIGH.
