I urge you to listen to this song and not feel it run through your veins. I don’t care if you are female or male, I don’t care if you think women are overreacting. (We are not!) What I care about is that we need to acknowledge what is going on. We need to acknowledge the strength that these women have that are coming forward. We all have a mother, we have sisters, daughters, friends, and I for one want them to all know that I would stand with them if they were threatened in any way.
Being a female is not only part of me it surrounds me. My patients are all females, I watch women give birth everyday that I go to work. Ninety percent of my co-workers are female. I am surrounded by strong, smart women everyday of my life. I’m hopeful that if we stand up and support each other, that my daughter’s generation will only be stronger.
I want you to know I stand with you all. I am female.
