Calling All Woman Haters

Hey friends! I am still recovering from typing up the conference notes (my wrists and elbows are very inflamed) so I don’t have any long EDS related posts for you yet, but I am slowly working on a bunch. Heavy emphasis on bunch. I have so much stuff I can’t wait to share with you! For now, though, something that is very near and dear to me: standing up against abuse. As you know, I am an abuse survivor and I have a new anthem: Alanis Morissette’s new song Woman Down. I wanted to share the music and lyrics because they really hit home; I relate so much to the character in this song, being a daughter who was abused by my father figure. We don’t have to take abuse of any kind – from men, women, young, old, rich, poor. No one has the right to harm us. Definitely worth a listen – enjoy and be empowered!

Woman Down:
First woman down was your mother
She did condone how you behave
All you could see was your father
His disrespect was in her face
Next woman down was your sister
Her silence did corroborate
She took her cues from the climate
And never knew another way
Who do you take me for
Calling all woman haters
We’ve lowered the bar on the
Behavior that we will take—come on now
Calling all lady haters
Why must you vilify us
Are you willing to clean the slate?—woman down
Next woman down was your lover
She takes your spite at value face
Even her hair length and color
Gives you the impulse to repeat
Who do you take me for
Calling all woman haters
We’ve lowered the bar on the
Behavior that we will take—come on now
Calling all lady haters
Why must you vilify us
Are you willing to clean the slate?—woman down
Next woman down is your daughter
A stranger to being debased
She has a new lease and limit
On the abuse she’ll tolerate
Who do you take me for
Calling all woman haters
We’ve lowered the bar on the
behavior that we will take—come on now
Calling all lady haters
Why must you vilify us
Are you willing to clean the slate?—woman down
