Kate Coxall, BSC Green candidate, Wilsons Creek
In response to the silencing tactics of unaware and privileged men in last week’s Echo, I say ‘No’.
We, as women, will no longer be silenced. Women know what silencing means and what it leads to. What goes on behind closed doors, in bedrooms, boardrooms and other places a woman deserves to be treated as though her rights to her body are equal to that of a man’s.
I am here to tell you that a woman’s body is not here for your pleasure. A woman’s toil and mind is not here to be used or belittled as you feel, to serve you. It is 2021 and we are free, rising and coming to a council, boardroom, and battlefield near you, and we are ready to ROAR.
