South African Womens March against Apartheid – August 9th 1956



Anti-Apartheid Poster from the 1980s




Today we rise.



No more hiding in the shadows,


of culture,

creed,

tradition.




No more silent complicity,

disingenuous arguments,

hypocritical pretences,

shabby excuses for the actions of men,


brutal,
vulgar,
coarse,
obscene,
murderous,
abusive men.




Today, we rise,

as one.


Today the change starts,

with me,

within me.


With you.

Within you.




Today WE Rise!
