WELCOME TO THE STAND UP! RASASH BLOG.
Let's take a stand against sexual violence!
Modern day feminism is often misunderstood
It’s not about hating men
It’s about fighting for the good
Sometimes modern day feminism is misrepresented
It’s not about hating non-feminists
It’s about fighting for those who are still subjected
To a world of inequality
Modern day feminism is about fighting for a 0 tolerance society
Fighting for the those who cannot fight for themselves.
Fighting to stop placing people on these social media shelves
Fighting to stop for the idea of ‘my dress mean yes’
Fighting for global human rights progress
Modern day feminism is about using your voice
It’s about fighting for a choice
In the words of Millicent Fawcett
‘Courage calls to courage everywhere and it’s a voice that cannot be denied.’
It’s about taking a stand in what you believe
Demanding a change and a fight to achieve
Modern day feminism is about making the world an equal place
Not just for me. Not just for you, but for everyone
The whole human race.
Hello! I’m Kirsty Arnaud aged 14 from Dingwall Academy. I first heard about RASASH at the charity fair our school was holding for our YPI event and was inspired by the work the charity does. This further inspired my team and I to write a poem to express the social issues that still occur in our society today. Following the YPI journey I am lucky enough to continue my work with RASASH by writing items for their blog. Outside of school I am a member of Inverness Harriers athletics club and train and compete on a regular basis. My recent work with RASASH has redefined my understanding of feminism and I am looking forward to continuing to contribute to the RASASH campaign!
