The patriarchy
Self-congratulatory
of its own bias.

The working women
Polishing her glass ceiling
weeps for potential.

The conservatives
attack her choice as murder
But her life counts too.

Within rape culture
victim blame becomes the norm
She asked for it, right?

The battered woman
pain far from misogyny
She has no refuge.

Protest, you people
dispute the chauvinism
Our world needs no more.
