Sunday is international womens day, a day that marks womens equality, womens rights, womens achievements, let’s never forget those women who should be here celebrating shoulder to shoulder , those women who will never see their children grow up, those women whose parents have outlived them,whose partners grieve for, those women who never got to live and achieve everything they wanted. Let’s never forget and let’s continue to shout their names and continue to talk about them so the little women we are raising now will hopefully be able to realise their dreams, their hopes and live without fear of being a woman in modern Ireland.
It ends in a named grave,
It has ended in unmarked graves of the past .
Our names end up hidden in filing cabinets,
Or in an archived email folder.
Lives ended in laundries,
They began and then again ended in the same laundries.
We are left to travel outside of our homeland on planes,
We are left alone, behind closed doors, with no support,
We are left with no choice.
Women are left to tell their children they will not be there to comfort them,
In a time when they will need them the most.
Children are already motherless, husbands are widows.
Time has been cruelly taken, unnaturally and unjustly taken,
Lives could have, should have been saved,
Instead for reasons people will take to their own graves or pockets, they will never know.
Our faith is gone,
Your daughter, wife, mother, sister, grandmother, ,niece,aunt, cousin, friend deserve better.
