Poets Vs Gender Equality 

livingroom

  

  

To celebrate my birthday this year I decided to face my fear of public speaking and share a couple of my poems in public.  Quite a bold and surprising move considering that behind the carnival feathers and political rants, I am a very shy and private person. (No really, I am.)

Spurred on by the fantastic cause, my incredible friends and my desire to reclaim my voice and start my next orbit of the Sun as I mean it to continue, I danced onto the stage and tried to deliver my poem with all the gravitas the matter of gender equality deserved…. but settled for managing to get all the words out clearly and ending with a smile.  Although not a perfect performance-it was definitely fun and a learning experience and an absolute honour to take part in such an inspiring and important event.  Thank you @poetversus and UN Women, I am now officially a published poet!

  1. Greetings! This is amazing!! Enjoyed reading every single bit and look forward to reading more! I was wondering if you could checkout my new piece on living in a hierarchical patriarchal structure where slut shaming still exists. And I would really appreciate it if you could comment some feedback to improve the writing style. Looking forward to hearing from you. – Kiran
