Silence Will Not Save You

“I  write for those women who do not speak, for those who do not have a voice because they were so terrified, because we are taught to respect fear more than  ourselves.  We’ve been taught that silence would save us, but it won’t.”

~Audre  Lorde

“A self-styled “black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet,” writer Audre Lorde dedicated both her life and her creative talent to confronting and addressing the injustices of racism, sexism, and homophobia.” [Source]

I think I would have very much liked to meet this woman.
