From Madonna’s Instagram, filmed by Steven Klein, from a text by Indian-Canadian poet Rupi Kaur. #thefutureisequal
I want to apologize to all the women I have called pretty
before I’ve called them intelligent or brave
I am sorry I made it sound as though
something as simple as what you’re born with
is all you have to be proud of
when you have broken mountains with your wit
From now on I will say things like
you are resilient, or you are extraordinary
not because I don’t think you’re pretty
but because I need you to know
you are more than that.
In the spirit of intl women’s day by Rupi Kaur, Milk and Honey.
