“I march at Take Back the Night because I’m sick of ‘I’m not a feminist, but’. I am sick of fearing for my future daughters. Because I am tired of shame, fear & guilt. Because we’re not moving forward with gender equality, we’re stagnant, we’re losing ground, and we all deserve better than simply wanting to be sexy and desirable.” — Emily
