Because I am a Girl I ask…that girls everywhere get the same opportunities as boys.
Because I am a Girl I believe…in love.
Because I am a Girl I hope…and dream and hope and dream and hope.
Because I am a Girl I wonder…at the lives of other women.
Because I am a Girl I dream…and hope and dream and hope and dream…
Because I am a Girl I remember…to honour and respect the feminine energy in this world.
Because I am a Girl I like…community, and know that it takes a community to raise a child.
Because I am a Girl I dislike…the alienation of women that comes with lack of community.
Because I am a Girl I feel…connected to women everywhere.
Because I am a Girl I…think of women everywhere, and want to support them as much as possible from my position of privilege and strength in this world.
