I am not a suffragette,

I just want what is mine.

I am not a feminist,

I just want what is truth.

I am not a woman,

I just want my due.

I am not a name, a trend, a label.

If I am not a slave.

I must be a rebel who will not behave.

I am worth no more,

no less than you.

“The woman wanderer goes forth to seek the Land of Freedom.

“How am I to get there?” Reason answers: “here is one way, and one only. Down the banks of Labour, through the water of suffering. There is no other.”

The woman cries out: “For what do I go to this far land which no one has ever reached? Oh, I am alone! I am utterly alone!”

But soon she hears the sounds of feet, ‘a thousand times ten thousand and thousands of thousands, and they beat this way!’

“They are the feet of those who shall follow you. Lead on.”
