Be glad that you’re a girl.
People are afraid of a girl’s strength, so they oppress them. (As my friend Jamie likes to say)
You know, in some parts of the world, girls have to get married when they’re 14, and pregnant by they’re 15. The girl could die during childbirth. They then have to sell their body to get money to barely survive. They risk being in contact with HIV. No doctors=no cure, so what can they do? They just went to school until 12 years old. Can they find a job? It’s extremely difficult.
Girls are underprivileged. They’re treated as objects, not people.
But today is International Women’s Day! We are girls, we can be strong.
You can be strong.
