    “We have the temerity to be not just women, but women of color. Women with melanin in our skin and voices in our throats. Voices that will not be vanquished. Not now, not ever. We will not be silenced.”

    Whores. Enabling men to conquer their bodies as an ultimate prize during a conquest. Scurrying around from bed to bed giving disregard to the countless broken hearts laid by a path of deceitful pleasure. Paheli’s mother was a whore. A profession she does not
