Over the Feminist Rainbow


This photo was taken by the author in Kauai, 2005.

Somewhere over the rainbow
where I can’t see
There’s a place that I dream of
called feminist equality

Somewhere over the rainbow
womyn of color fly
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true

Some day I’ll speak and be believed
And wake up where there is no rage inside me
Where oppression melts like lemondrops
and racism ends like lollipops
That’s where you’ll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow
womyn of color fly
I watch others fly over the rainbow
Why then, oh why can’t I?

Some days I read hooks and Lorde
And dream of Anzaldua’s sword
My words come from harvest crops
and carries to the mountain tops
That’s where you’ll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow
Freedom flies
I need to fly over the rainbow
Why then, oh why can’t I?

If feminism says I can fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can’t I?
