Stories of Girls’ Resistance

“It’s something about who I am, how I evolved. It’s something that I believe in both concept and practice. Since the moment I became aware of life and death, people and relationships and everything, I experienced injustice. I can see the power imbalance in both the society where men are dominating in almost everything and telling women what to wear, what to do, etc. Then besides this patriarchal oppression I was able to suddenly experience colonial oppression. Ultimately experiencing both on a systematic level from a very early age, my understanding that resistance is part of what I am, it’s not something that I do to claim it’s important.”
