Posted on Updated on

 

 

“… It is celebrated on November 25, the date that commemorates the brutal murder of the Mirabal sisters in 1960. The date also marks the 16 days of activism against gender violence that precede World Human Rights Day on December 10 …”

 

 


Women are amazing.You say nothing and they understand everything.

They say everything and you don’t understand anything.

This is how women have ruled the world since the beginning of time and from the beginning of time.

There are the simple ones, the sweetly naive ones, there are the complicated ones, indomitable like hurricanes.

Whatever nuance their character has, they are the ones who make the difference.

With their looks full of words, with their hearts full of bruises.

Yes, when a woman becomes a female it starts to make a difference.

You are not born a woman you become, charm, love, courage.

They are made of smiles that know how to swallow tears,

of silences where their deepest feelings scream and

of moments when they don’t want to be understood,

they just want to be loved.

With the right time and the right shoes they can do anything,

where do they find the strength? …

they are women …

is the strength to find them …

Francesco Sole
