“Daughter of the forest” – Tina Lawson

From my last blog post, I should have ended it with a song: “Daughters” by Lissie. So I’ll start this post with the song.

When I was writing about how awesome women are, and how awful men can be to women, this song came to mind. It’s catchy as hell, and it encapsulates what I was saying. You should listen to Lissie talk about the song, too.

We are the daughters
We are the damned and doomed
Give us your violence
We won’t be silent
We are the shelter
We are the helpers
We are the daughters

I don’t have anything more to add except for a fist raised in solidarity.
