    Celebrating the mystery and the spirit of all women and bless her she is right. We are phenomenal- we are the lovers, the builders of homes, the hands of industry, the bearers of children, the safe room of children, we are friends, we are enemies of evil, so let's stand tall and walk the earth with authority (Report) Reply

    It's the fire in my eyes,
    And the flash of my teeth,
    The swing in my waist,
    And the joy in my feet.
