Freedom

Freedom to choose:

Who to love

Who to marry

Not to marry

Whether to have children

How to dress

To study

To work

To drive

To dance

To sing

What to read

What to say

Where to go

Where to shop

What to buy

Who to spend time with

A religion

No religion

 

Freedom to choose whatever one wants to do, however one wants to do it, wherever one wants to do it, whenever one wants to do it.

Most of us are blessed to have this exquisite freedom of choice and we spend our lives taking it for granted.

Many of our sisters don’t have these choices, simply by virtue of their place of birth, their culture or family.

 

It could have been us.

    Today is International Women’s Day. I wrote this a couple of years ago when I was living in Ghana and feeling incredibly grateful for the freedom that my country of birth afforded me.
