Slave, enslaved, slavery,Masters, and slaves,Slaves that awoke to the potential of being freePursued their right to be freeFree women and men!
But women are still not freeIn most of the world,To the largest part,Women are still enslavedto traditional roles, to dress codes, to serving all around themSort of like the eternal slaves,The eternal laborers, Used and abused,Exploited and mistreated,Not seen for who they are, still not equal, still lagging far behind Still not deciding, influencing in proportion to their numbers, not managing and directingNot leading, or co-leading.Still silenced, excluded, behind closed doors.
And now is the time to put things back in order.
Now is the time to order anewBy restoring the balance,By letting women in To express and be partIn co-leading with men As equals.
And on this Seder night, look around the table and acknowledge the women in your midst.Support them in being all of who they can be,to reach places traditionally occupied by men.Undo the wrong, liberate women, bring in the seder-orderwe so long, and never, ever, pass a woman over again.
