Women I know keep asking and saying things like “why march for such small things? (i.e. tampons) when women in other countries have it so much worse. I can vote, own land, etc.. *then proceeds to point out things that are either half true or probably still happen in America just like in the other countries before mentioned* ”
You want to know why?
Because they marched for our right to vote and to own land and all that other stuff. Just to be treated, legally, as equals.
You see, little things add up. They always seem small until you put them together. If we don’t fight for the “little” things then why bother with fighting at all.
You know what’s great about women empowerment? It’s infectious. Who’s to say that the Women’s March wouldn’t effect people in those other countries to stand up for their own rights.
