Yes, She Will

No, you can’t wear that dress, it’s too short

No, you can’t go out late at night, it’s not safe,

No, you can’t be friends with boys, it’s not good for your reputation,

No, you can’t study further, it’s of no use,

No, you can’t run a business, it’s something out of your capacity.

Every time women are told ‘no’ with some or the other reason attached

But women are no longer bound by these negations and notions.

Because yes, she can and will wear that dress, as it’s her body

Because yes, she can and will go out late at night, as she can protect herself

Because yes, she can and will be friends with boys, as her reputation is not dependent on that

Because yes, she can and will study, as it’s of use for her identity

Because yes, she can and will run a business, as it’s as much in her capacity as for anyone else.

Wishing the women reading this, a very Happy Women’s Day.

Thank you for reading.
