If you only hear one speech from the Women’s March, let it be singer Halsey’s poem: “A Story Like Mine.”
It is every #metoo story. Every #timesup frustration.
In just a few minutes, Halsey achingly and vulnerably details the full experience of being a woman in a society strangled by rape culture. Her eloquence strikes at the heart of every victim of harassment, assault, and abuse who has had enough.
Her story is our story—the story of every woman. And it’s not a story drawn on party lines. It’s an inspiration and a call to arms. It’s an invitation that we each speak out and create the change we all so richly deserve.
