C'mon Bitches: Let's Do This Shit

Do it for your mother.
Do it for your grandmother.
Do it for your daughters and nieces.
Do it for the American women, nasty or not, who aren't alive to see today.
Do it for the women who are living under oppression all over the world.
Do it for the girls who can't go to school.
Do it for the child brides.
Do it for Ida B. Wells, Susan B. Anthony, and the Suffragettes.
Do it for the 19th Amendment.
Do it for the rape victims.
Do it for everyone who ever said you were bad at math and science.
Do it for everyone who stood in the way of your promotion at work.
Do it for everyone who shamed you for breastfeeding your baby in public.
Do it for everyone who wants you to sit down, shut up, and look pretty.
Do it for every man who touched you without permission.
Do it for every man who stalked you.
Do it for every man who hit you.
Do it for every man who threatened you.
Do it for every man who yelled at you and made you feel small.
Do it for every man who made fun of your looks.
Do it for everyone who told you to smile when you didn't feel like smiling.
Do it for anyone who ever shamed you for crying.
Do it for anyone who tells you that you can't.
Do it for the trolls.
Do it for a society that tells you that you only matter while you're young and beautiful.
Do it for people of color.
Do it for the disabled.
Do it for the immigrants who built this country and keep it going.
Do it to rebuke white supremacy.
Do it to rebuke bigotry.
Do it to rebuke misogyny.
Do it to make history.
Do it to make a statement.
Do it to make a difference.
Do it to send a message.
Do it to set an example.
Do it for your country.
Do it for your economy.
Do it for science.
Do it for the planet.
Do it for national security and global legitimacy.
Do it in a pants suit, a miniskirt, or your pajamas.
Do it quietly and alone.
Do it even though it's imperfect--flawed, even.
Do it for yourself.

No matter why you do it, just do it. C'mon bitches, we got this. Let's do this shit.
