Our Warrior Cry #BringBackOurGirls by Bridget Robertson


"We will right an ancient wrong" is our warrior cry.
This is the moment that we are charging patriarchy.
A declaration that it's time is over.
We have heard Her voice.
#BringBackOurGirls. Bring back all of our girls that are missing,
from every nation in this world.
They are not others, someone else's. They are in our flesh, our bones and our blood.
We refuse to carry on as usual.
We will engage collectively with our weapons of words, art, music, civil protest and noncooperation with the status quo.
Each will be infused with unyielding passion and bold vision.
For this is not a fleeting campaign. It is the time chosen to show all of our daughters,
we will not stop until they each have their Goddess-given right to a full place in this world.
