When I first met Private attorney Dea Enzo I was amazed by her appearance. It was sexy, it was revealing, it was a lot of skin. Curiosity got the best of me, and I asked her why, as she seemed a very sharp and sophisticated woman, why did she wear a skirt that barely reached below her cervix, along with a top that only showed off her 'assets'.
She was patient with my narrow minded questions, and explained that she was an activist for women's rights. This included women's sexuality and the right to dress however you wanted.
The attorney claims "When women bend for social standards, what to wear and how to look, they give up a piece of themselves". And perhaps she is right. I must say I admire her for the guts to walk the streets dressed in barely anything, for ignoring those leering eyes of the citizens, to expose herself to a world where women, if assaulted or even subjected to rape, will be asked what she was wearing that night. If her skirt was too short, or if much of her skin was exposed.
Maybe we should all follow Dea Enzo's example. Is it time to show off those bare shoulders and silken thighs. Is the world ready? Dea thinks so, and you can see the passion in her eyes as she speaks of it. At the end of our interview, the attorney would shout out the words:
"I will fight, I will carry on the struggle, upon the streets, upon the beaches. I will never surrender!"
Maybe that is what it takes? That we all shout it out loud.
