I Want a Sisterhood of Savage and Dangerous Women

They said, “You are a savage and dangerous woman.” I am speaking the truth. And the truth is savage and dangerous.

Nawal El Saadawi, Woman at Point Zero (1973).

 

Who made the world?

Who gave us life?

Who bore the fruits of our human history, the true ones?

 

Speak.

Speak the truth.

The savage and dangerous truth.

 

Not the tame and sanitized lie of patriarchy.

The lie about fathers and brothers and husbands and sons.

Time’s Up, now it’s time for the truth.

 

Sisters, speak the truth.

Listen to your sister’s truth, tell her Me Too.

Fight back, savagely and dangerously.

 

I want a sisterhood of savage and dangerous women.

Women who speak the truth.

And the truth is savage and dangerous.
