I am the Tunisian Woman


I am the martyr, the mother of the martyr, the sister of the martyr, the daughter of the martyr...
I am the injured of the revolution...the protester...the jailed...the detained...the tortured...the exiled... the kidnapped...the raped...
I am the veiled, the non-veiled... it's according to my deep conviction...
I am white,light skinned, dark-skinned... anyway, I am a beautiful soul...
I am the pregnant...the wife...the single mother... the widow... 
I am living with HIV... I am living with one hand...one leg...one kidney... but, I study... I work... I travel...
Yet I am NOT the victim... I am the leader...
I cleaned up the streets of my country ... I raised up the past, present and future generations...
I speak out for my son at school, for my client in court, for my art at theater, for my mom at hospital, for my mind on paper...
I live in the city, in the town, in the countryside, in the suburb, on the borders, in the mountains... 
I boost the economy... I advance the technology... 
I win the gold medal... the silver, the bronze medal... the World's Awards...

Do I deserve to be equal to you? YES I do because I AM the Tunisian Woman

My achievements are not to be waived...
My dreams are not for giving up...
My body is not for sale...
My mind is for manipulation...
My place is not for abdication...
My job is not for quitting...
My views are not for granted...
My rights are not to be violated...
My Code is not to be disclaimed...

Why? because I AM the Tunisian Woman
