It was not made for us:

The shield

And the armor

They were built for men

In the blindness of history

Not recognizing

That women fight wars too

The shield and the armor

We donned

Were unwieldy and ill-fitting

When first we took the field

So we adjusted

We gathered what we could

And made it our own

Warriors overlooked

By an ancient machine

We carry our shield

Into our battle ~ Caroline A. Slee
