19 May Sappho
This is a thank you and homage to those who makes it possible for us to be who we are. Without shame. Some of the names mentioned in the first song are various writers and activists. Many of them are Swedish. Here are some names that history might have forgotten or need to remember more vividly. You can google them, be inspired, continue the fight for your right to your body, your mind, your rights and obligations and to continue working in solidarity for a world without sexism and patriarchy. Who is a feminist hero to you?
