The Women Who Are No Longer With Us

Another World Is Possible.

Their histories

Their joys and sorrows

Their pain and rage

Their memories and omissions

Their laughter and tears

Their presence and absence

Their hearts

Their hopes

Their dignity

Their calendars:
The pages they were able to turn
 The ones they left unturned and the ones left to us to turn

Their screams

Their silences

 Yes, above all, their silences

Whoever you are, do you hear these women?
 Who does not recognize him or herself in them?

Women who struggle
Yes, us

But above all, them:
Those women who are no longer here

But who are with us nonetheless

We do not forget them 
We do not forgive those who took them from us

We struggle for those women, and with them
