Shame on you

It’s ironic, no
that the women who fight the hardest
are the ones who get bitten back the hardest.

It’s ludicrous, no
that while fighting for gender equality
someone can slap you with mockery, harassment, it’s all fun and games
No.

You can’t define us by shapes and curves exposed
No
You cannot.

Emma Watson made an inspiring speech to the UN this week and it has been all over every media outlet. This morning, when I Googled Emma I was bombarded with threats that hackers had made to expose her in the most heinous of ways. Shame on you. Shame on you for trying to break her, shame on you for trying to break any woman, shame on you for objectifying, belittling and oppressing women, any woman in that way.
