A day in the life of a girl

6:00 am- wake up.

7:00 am- read the newspaper while eating breakfast. lose your appetite halfway through because once again girls your age were raped and left to die.

7:15 am to 2:00 pm- school. listen to your physics teacher say that girls can’t do physics. another teacher tells girls to stop eating otherwise or risk becoming too fat to attract suitors for marriage.

3:00 pm- reach home. eat lunch. justify your feminism to your father for the hundredth time. he doesn’t listen.

3:30 pm to 4:00 pm- go on tumblr. delete the anonymous message which says that you’re a cunt.

4:00 pm to 6:00 pm- leave the house to go to your classes. hold your phone tightly in your hand with your dad’s number on speed dial. hope that the man leering at you won’t go any further than that.

6:00 pm to 9:00 pm- study. wonder if all of this is worth it because you’re not attractive and in the end your looks will matter more than your passion or your expertise.

9:00 pm- go on twitter. a man, who happen to be running for president, halfway around the globe boasts about sexually assaulting a woman .

9:10 pm to 11:00 pm- study some more

11:00 pm- drown your frustrations in a hot shower.

11:15 pm-cry yourself to sleep.
