A Feminist's ABCs

Hi! This is my first post on Voice Mag so I really hope that my work interests or inspires you.

A Feminist's ABCs

Having been inspired myself, by feminism discussions of the equality society within my school, and the incredible artwork I saw online on International Women's Day, I thought it was time that I too shared a piece of my own art to coincide with the theme.
This is a short poem, listing a few of the significant feminist issues within our modern world. Hope you like it! :)

abortion.
 body image.
  catcalling.
   domestic abuse.
    eating disorders.
     female CEOs.
      gender equality.
       household responsibilities.
        intersectionality.
         justice.
          knowledge.
           liberation.
            marriage.  
            'no'.
             opportunities.
              patriarchy.
               queer.
                rape.
                 single parent.
                  trafficking.
                   underestimation.
                    virginity.
                     wages.
                      x-clusion.
                       your life.
                        zero tolerance.
