Revolution of Girls

When old communist lands
Raised the red banner
Of revolution high
Women fought beside men
As comrades in arms and thought
Doubling the strength of their people
This is why the dragon now rises

Now new Islamic lands
Raise the clenched fist
Of revolution high
Women hidden behind veils and doors
Barred from fight and freedom
Sapping the strength of their people
That is why the sphinx may falter

We need a revolution of girls
Enough of male wealth protectors
Give us female hearth protectors
Enough of old men arm racers
Give us young women child raisers

Let all people join as one in struggle
Let women make men’s barren world pregnant
With the thoughts and love and life and hope
That this world needs to survive
