We'd like to thank all of our readers and contributors for their support over the years and look forward to coming back bigger, better and stronger.

They say that we’re women
They say that we’re Queens
but a queen who can never rule her own kingdom
They say that we’re Jewelry
but we’re not allowed to show how pretty and shiny we can be
They say that our bodies are Precious and that our Virginity is sacred
but we’re not allowed to even enjoy and celebrate our sacredness
They say that we’re Beautiful
but we’re never allowed to be anything that can make ourselves feel beautiful
There are a lot of words that can define us
But we’re not allowed to define ourselves
Our definition of womanhood are all defined by those who are intimidated by us
Those who told us to cover
Those who told us to be obedient
Those who tortured us
Those who never learned how to treat a queen, to wear a jewelry, to be delicate with our bodies, and to let us be beautiful
And by those who are afraid that we’re not going to be able to love them
as much as we love ourselves
Because at the end, we’re Women
will love her
that she is a woman
more worth than any man;
men, that she is the rarest of all women
