Every man, every woman


Make text smaller Make text larger





Not every man batters, rapes or abuses women.

Yet every woman lives under the Damoclesian Sword

Of potential battery, rape or abuse by man.

“Not by me,” you may say, but which of us can say

That he has treated every woman as he would

Have his mother, sister, wife or daughter treated?

I know that, in truth, I cannot. Yet every woman

Is somebody’s mother, sister, wife or daughter

And every man is, at least, some mother’s son.

Every man is half of every woman and

Every woman is half of every man in that

The two are the whole that creates the infinite number.

For one half of the whole to injure the other

Is to do itself a mischief and to damage the whole.

Treat every woman as you would have

Your mother, sister, wife or daughter treated.

To do otherwise is to cause grievous harm to humanity.
