For all of us

Today we are here. Standing. All together. Many voices with only one message in common: equal rights.

A phenomenon is taking the streets reacts to a normal/pertinent question: “Who do you think I am?!”. It’s not just about exploitation, it’s also about the complex challenges people face every day. Such as: sexism, body shaming, slut shaming, no paid maternity leave, violence, emotional abuse, no freedom of speech, no freedom of choice. The gender gap is still a reality when it comes to finance, investments, social life and even screen time in the entertainment business.

Besides this we are in a period of evolution where more genders and norms are finally being shown to the world and thanks to that we are able to live in a diversified society. We will not preach fear against the unknown. All over the world, people are showing their true colors and there’s nothing that can stop them.

Right now it is the time to march for equal rights to equal forces: because all genders deserve the same civil rights.

Let’s continue.
