Varför?
Därför att vi fortfarande går hem rädda.
Därför att vi alla känner någon som krossats.
Eller krossats själva.
Därför att mäns våld mot kvinnor är ett brott mot dom mänskliga rättigheterna.
Därför att det sker varje dag, varje timme, varje minut runt hela jorden.
Därför att vi vägrar acceptera att män tar sig rätten att skrämma, slåss och hota.
Därför att vi tror på ett samhälle där barn ska slippa gömma sig under täcket och inte veta om mamma är okej när skriken tystnar.
Därför att vi vet att det går att förändra.
Därför vägrar vi att ge upp.
Därför letar vi ständigt nya vägar att komma framåt.
Därför behöver vi dig.
Och du oss.
Därför att vi måste göra det tillsammans.
Därför att ingen är fri förrän vi alla är fria.
Därför.
Why?
Because we still go home afraid.
Because we all know someone who have been broken down.
Or been broken down ourselves.
Because mens violence against women is a crime against human rights.
Because this happens every day, every hour, every minute around the world.
Because we refuse to accept that men take the liberty to intimidate, fight and threaten.
Because we believe in a society where children don't have to hide under their sheets, not knowing if mother is okay when the screaming stops.
Because we know that change is possible.
That's why we refuse to give up.
That's why we keep on searching for new ways to move forward.
That's why we need you.
And you need us.
Because we need to do this together.
Because no one is free until we all are free.
That's why.
- Eva Röse

"BABY THIS IS MY SONG 

ABOUT US
BABY DO YOU REMEMBER
TELLING ME HOW I AM NOT ENOUGH

YOU TOOK A PIECE OF ME
A LOT AV BRUISES AND A LOT OF BLEEDING
BUT MY HEART IS STILL BEATING
WITHOUT YOU

YOU DONT KNOW
WHERE I AM
HIDING 
LURKING
IN THE SHADOWS

YOULL NEVER KNOW
WHEN IM ABOUT TO STRIKE

 

I WILL FIND YOU

I WILL FIND YOU

I WILL FIND YOU

IN YOUR DREAMS

FOREVER IS A LONG LONG TIME
AND I WAS NEVER THERE TO STAY
BROKEN ARMS
BROKEN RIBS
BUT THERE ARE STILL BONES IN ME

MAYBE YOU HAD A PIECE
BUT YOU NEVER GOT IT ALL
YOU NEVER GOT IT ALL
REMEMBER ME BABY
WHEN YOU FALL

YOU DONT KNOW
WHERE I AM
HIDING 
LURKING
IN THE SHADOWS

YOULL NEVER KNOW
WHEN IM ABOUT TO STRIKE

 

I WILL FIND YOU

I WILL FIND YOU

I WILL FIND YOU

IN YOUR DREAMS

YOU DONT KNOW
WHERE I AM
HIDING 
LURKING
IN THE SHADOWS  

HERE I AM
HERE I AM
HERE I AM
IN THE SHADOWS

BRUISES FADE
AND SO DO YOU
BROKEN BONES
IN THE SHADOWS
IN THE SHADOWS
IN THE SHADOWS
OF YOU"

"Let me tell a story when we screamed until our voices broke

Let me tell a story when we fought our way to vote

Let me tell a story when we stopped being property

Let me tell a story when we got in university

 

We've been suppressed

We've been oppressed

 

I want to be free, I want to feel whole

Instead I’m belittled in body and soul

We play our part, we play our role

Without any control

 

Let me tell a story when history got replaced

Let me tell a story when women got erased

Let me tell a story when we were burned alive

Let me tell a story when we were forced to be wives

 

We've been suppressed

We've been oppressed

 

I want to be free, I want to feel whole

Instead I’m belittled in body and soul

We play our part, we play our role

Without any control"
