There has been a movement of women empowerment sweeping the nation, and this is a reflection of the that awakening. The days of women being content with being second class citizens are long gone. We’ve finally realized there is more to us than just being care takers of men and children, we also have to be caretakers for ourselves.
“Ain’t nowhere to go but up/ leave my fears in the dust/ you know I’ve had enough/ fighter, fighter/ got more guts than a warrior/ higher, higher/ nothing’s gonna take me down,” are some of the many powerful lyrics that prove there is a fighter in each of the women who have and will participate in the women’s marches while donning their pink pussy hats.
