I was Born.

Today, I reflect on some of the many things I've take for granted as a woman.

Being able to: go to school. Read. Wear shorts. Have a childhood. Go to university. Live on my own. Travel alone. Drive. Have a bank account. Be an equal witness. Marry a man of my choice. Work. Earn equal pay. Vote. Pray without an intermediary.

Or maybe I should have started with: being allowed to be born.

To the organisations who defend and promote these rights, to the women who brave the odds and fight for them, and to the men who stand by them, you live in the lightest corner of my heart, and have my deepest gratitude.

Happy Women's Day, all.
