For Every Girl...
For every girl who is tired of acting weak when she is
strong, there is a boy tired of appearing strong when he feels vulnerable.
For every boy who is burdened with the constant expectation
of knowing everything, there is a girl tired of people not trusting her
For every girl who is tired of being called over-sensitive,
there is a boy who fears to be gentle, to weep.
For every boy for whom competition is the only way to prove
his masculinity, there is a girl who is called unfeminine when she competes.
For every girl who throws out her e-z-bake oven, there is a boy
who wishes to find one.
For every boy struggling not to let advertising dictate his
desires, there is a girl facing the ad industry’s attacks on her self-esteem.
For every girl who takes a step toward her liberation, there
is a boy who finds the way to freedom a little easier.
