Space is respect

Space is respect

In the past two years, I have lived in four very different countries. But, in each of them I have noticed one very big issue: a lack of space for women.

It came across both physically and psychologically. There were countless times of sitting on a bus or walking down the street where a man refused to give me space to pass or just space to be.

More frustrating, were the times when I saw women not able to speak out, or being disregareded when she did so.

Women need space. Space to grow into themselves and their potential. Space to participate – in civic life, family and work.

Space represents respect, acknowledging that women have just as much right to be here plus its better for everyone when they are.

This space, this work, is my little contribution to that.
