“I speak not for myself but for those without voice... those who have fought for their #rights... their right to live in peace, their right to be treated with dignity, their right to equality of opportunity, their right to be educated.”
-Malala Yousafzai

I scrolled through, easily, 25 quotes by men before I found ONE by a woman on the topic of communication on the interwebs. This one. In total, I found 2. The systematic silencing of voices carries a deep and debilitating long-term affect. And let‘s talk about representation for women of color - of the 50 some-odd quotes I scrolled through today, none were by women of color. 😤

Representation matters.

“Every #social justice movement that I know of has come out of people sitting in small groups, telling their life stories, and discovering that other people have shared similar experiences.”

“Just a little green
Like the color when the spring is born
There'll be crocuses to bring to school tomorrow
Just a little green
Like the night's when the Northern lights perform
There'll be #icicles and birthday clothes
And sometimes there'll be sorrow”
- Joni Mitchell, from “Little Green”

“It is the nature of the artist to mind #excessively what is said about him. Literature is strewn with the wreckage of men who have minded beyond reason the opinions of others.”
- Virginia Woolf

I think I will double-challenge myself to find quotes by women to fit each prompt! @TK-421

It is impossible to live #without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default.
-J. K. Rowling
