Dear Mr President, #ReadMyLips and Listen.

I am not an American.

But that does not mean that I am unaffected by the politics of the world, especially when I see such blatant and horrific cases of Sexism, Racism, Homophobia and Xenophobia as displayed by our new President, Trump.

I've never been more worried about how my place in the world, as a woman, could be affected by just one individual. One individual with the power the influence peoples opinions and decisions, the power to sway the largest nation on the planet, and most importantly an individual who should be using this power of theirs to make a good and profound impact on everyone around them.

On Womens Day, just a few days ago, Trump posted a tweet saying how much he appreciates and respects all women - which pales in comparison to the many disgusting quotes we've all come to hear from this mans lips.

So, I give you a challenge, Mr President.

PROVE IT.

Prove to the world that you appreciate what the women of this world can do.

Empower young girls all over your country to stand up and do great things, to never be afraid to do something just because they're a girl. 

Think about your daughters, and just how horrified you'd be if they were subject to the abuse and degradation that is seen as a normal attitude to women. Show them that they aren't second-class, that they are equal. 

Tell every woman who has survived abuse, or rape, that they matter and it's not their fault that this happened to them.

Tell girls that they don't have to smile, or look pretty, or act like a 'real girl'. 

Tell every woman who is expecting a child that they are not just human incubators, that they have more options than being a stay-at-home mother and they are worth more than just their child-rearing capacities.

If women are, as you say, 'Vital to the fabric of our society and our economy' - then read my lips, Mr Trump, instead of trying to force yourself onto them. 

This message was posted as part of #ReadMyLips, a campaign enabling individuals to share a personal message with President Trump on what they want from him for women's health and women's rights these next 4 years.
