I remember the flag on our hands as if it was freedom, freedom at last. I remember how we stood on the streets believing the world was taking a turn, we along with the men, not noticing our heads still covered, not noticing our bodies hidden, we also there, feeling for the first time a glimpse of freedom. Feeling that we were leaving our houses for something more truthful, more fair. We there, as they were, driving the dictatorship of one man to collapse. We believing to be equal, believing in a new land being born that day as we all stood together on a street, millions of women and men fighting for a cause. And then at the celebration it all tumbling down, as men celebrated with our bodies. As they took control over what they thought was theirs when it wasn’t. And, we, with our faces covered, as they had taught us to, we rescuing a women that was raped in the celebration for liberty, we rescuing her with the shame they could not feel. We with the fear returning home with our faces hidden and a feeling that something was not right. That something was not right.
