All across the world, in one form or another, she’s mutilated
Someone’s daughter, wife, sister is raped, murdered.
Often she has fewer rights to property, inheritance, equal pay
She remains as a story between the binders, can’t have her say
Sometimes it’s a challenge simply being a woman, she’s often tired

Around the world, at least one in three women has been abused
Her voice is stolen, often of her rights, she is deprived
In the US, every 15 seconds, a woman is assaulted, beaten
On this International Day for Elimination of Violence against Women
Let’s speak up, give her a voice, join together for this abuse to end
