I remember guys trying to kiss me even though I had said “No” more than once

My name is Eimear, I’m eighteen and I’m an Irish Youtuber. I’ve been creating videos on my channel for almost two years. I make videos about my daily life and anything that’s on my mind. I’ve lived in Dublin my entire life and I’m currently in sixth year in Our Lady’s School Terenure

Because I am a Girl I ask..… if I have a daughter will she be heavily judged based on her looks.

Because I am a Girl I believe..…. it’s important to show your emotions.

Because I am a Girl I hope..….. that one day I can walk at dark without having to hold my keys and look over my shoulder.

Because I am a Girl I wonder ……what it’s like to be a boy.

Because I am a Girl I dream..… of a world where women support each other rather than gossiping about one another.

Because I am a Girl I remember.… guys trying to kiss me even though I had said “No” more than once.

Because I am a Girl I like…. feeling safe.

Because I am a Girl I dislike… being judged based on how much skin I show.

Because I am a Girl I feel.…. the pressure to be perfect.

Because I am a Girl I celebrate.……. the rights I have because of brave women who fought for equality
