So Let Us Hear It - Poem by Francis Duggan

Let us hear it for women a rousing hooray
The unsung heroines of the Human World of today
For equal work to men most of them not paid equal pay
In a fair Human World it would not be this way
The grandmothers and mothers the daughters and wives
And the great single women who devote their lives
In the helping of people of helping in need
A good woman is a great person indeed
For too long some women by their men treated bad
And this putting it mildly to say the least sad
For too long by men women have been kept down
A town without women as leaders is a leaderless town
So let us hear it for women them we should celebrate
For to right a wrong it is never too late.
