On Misogynoir and Institutional Warfare

It is so wrong.

It is so wrong that perpetrators walk free,

are offered mediation.

And when black womxn speak,

they are punished,

their futures put in jeopardy.

Everyday we are reminded:

our bodies mean nothing,

our cries mean nothing.

Being womxn

Being queer

Being black.

To be socially dead and fight everyday to be recognised as humxn-

it is jarring,

traumatic.

We are tired.

Rhodes University stop the war on Black Womxn!
