To speak of sex is to speak of power. Our society and the systems that support it are mired in a heterosexist, misogynistic world view which attempts to strip women of our sexual power. Dykes experience this first-hand wherever we’re out (or outed). Women all over the world are denied reproductive and sexual healthcare due to the Bush mandate to cut foreign aid to facilities viewed as promoting abortion and contraception.
We march for Women who are globally criminalized, silenced, shamed, threatened, jailed, beaten, raped, and killed for the act or even the articulation of desire for other women. We speak of sex in 2006 because we must again re-claim publicly that our bodies and lives belong to ourselves. We stand together with the strength of articulate dissent, and refuse to allow others to regulate our bodies or our desires. We say yes to desire, to sexual need and expression, fierce peace – yes to owning our power!
