Words create worlds

I've been reading alot of articles and stories lately on the occasion of Icelands annual 16 days of activism against gender-based violence. This is something that should be important for everybody since it affects us all. We are born into society that teaches us who we are as women and men, and sadly, we still have a long way to go. But we are moving forward day by day, by people who know that words create worlds. That what we agree with is what molds our environment (among other things of course). And sometimes we just agree with society, because it's easier, and because sometimes it's hard to believe things will ever change.
"It always seems impossible until it's done" -Nelson Mandela.

Words create worlds.
If you don't know that yet, know that whenever you laugh at a misogynistic or sexist joke, you're saying I'm OK with this.
When you're hear someone talk about women like a piece of meat, like they're nothing but sex on legs, and you keep silent, you're saying I'm OK with that.
Or if you're friends joke about violence or rape, and you don't say anything, you're saying I'm OK with this.

We are born to be great, don't settle. Take action, correct your friends or you're colleagues. Know that you can make a difference.
