This is great!

EspnW's women-created and produced short film gives voice to every woman and girl who sees their movement as a movement.
www.espn.com/espn/feature/story/_/page/e...-women-history-month


To Whom It May Concern:
                                                           
What I am doing here is not for you                             
                                                 
Not for your judgment or your appraisal
Not for your assessment or your arousal
                              
No boy I know has ever been told he shouldn't play
Couldn't play
                                                         
I am no longer interested in shouldn'ts                                             
Or couldn'ts                                             
Or rules not written for me         
                                                    
I am not worried about getting too big or too strong
Or too fast
Or too full of myself
                                                        
I do not agree that "playing like a man" is a compliment                                                             

What I am doing here is not
For
You
                            
Movement
Is a movement
                            
My effort, my ambition, my desire                                                             
For me                                                             

For every woman, every girl
Who dares to see herself as something more
                            
Than a body to be rated
A score to be kept
                                                        
When I play, I keep my own score                                                             
When I play, I know who I am 
When I play, I forget how it feels to be boxed in
To be boxed out
                            
When I play, I feel no shame
When I play, I remember                                                             
How it feels                                                             
To be free                                                              

This court
This field
This world                                              
Too small to hold me                                             

When I play I know I won't be undone
I won't be unsung
                            
My humility
My humanity
                            
My movement a movement                                                             
This is not the end of my dream
                            
This
Is where I
                            
Wake Up

:) Thanks, WSG. A teach on a snow day has lots of extra time on his hands!
