Lessons about rights 

Two things I have learned in my years of activism:
Nobody is going to give you rights. You have to claim them as yours and work to get them.
You then have to work to keep them.
That last one was a bit of a shock, I’ll be honest with you. 
I know people usually say ‘fight for your rights’ but I have always felt that working is far more effective and constructive. Fighting IS sometimes a part of the work, but it’s not the whole picture.
