Today Toads we are going to join in spirit with women and men around the world and scream. Together we will raise our voices against violence. March has been set aside by Woman Scream International Poetry Festival as the month to raise awareness through poetry about violence against women.
Woman Scream states their mission is to honor women and create a conscious calling against women’s violence for a culture of peace and to take self-esteem messages to women through artistic expression and poetry.
Although it is an event where people gather in person to collectively share their work in public venues I felt we could do our part in raising awareness through written participation.
