How to be a Woman: Ladies, Respect Yourselves. {Video}

Via on Dec 6, 2013

Hell. Yes.

This girl tears it up.

I first saw this on my Facebook newsfeed, shared by a friend. This young woman’s inspiring poem is quickly becoming a viral sensation with the accompanying title of Man she goes in. Realest shit I’ve heard from a female in a while.

Seriously, that’s its title on both YouTube and Facebook.

Initially, I tried to include some of this poem’s incredibly moving words, but I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s absolutely best when heard through the author’s powerful voice.

Watch this—and ladies, listen up.

    Sounds like a powerful poem — at least, I imagine so. The part I could hear sounded important and powerful. But as a person with significant hearing challenges, I'm sorry you decided we didn't need to read her words as visible text.
