Let us cease women to be subdued or allow ourselves to be boxed in by a wall of silence. Let our voices be heard. Let the stories of rape and other atrocities against be told. Throughout the world women are being abused. The disparity in the treatment of the sexes is real. The heinous crimes of rapes, murders and other forms of abuse meted out to women are real. The killing of babies because they are girls is real.
In the beginning God created woman as a companion for man. He did this because He thought man was lonely and needed another human like himself to relate to. I am quite sure it was intended that man would take good care of that woman. The heart of some men seem to be desperately wicked. They have no concept of what it is like to care for a woman. They are emotionally barren, devoid of the ability to love her unconditionally.
It is from the womb of a woman that new life enters this world. For nine months she carries a child in her womb, going through morning sickness and all the other things that comes with pregnancy. All she hopes for is a healthy child whether it be male or female. She does not hate her child because he happens to be a male. Her love is unconditional. She goes through labor and suffers excruciating pain to bring this child into the world. She spends many a sleepless night caring for her child, putting his or her needs before her own. At the end of it all how is she repaid?
Cursed is the man who lays his hand on a woman except to show his affection. Cursed is the man who inflicts pain on a woman. Cursed is the man who rapes a woman, violating the very place from where he made his entrance into this world. Shame unto the man who has no understanding that without a woman there would be no man because it takes both to reproduce. Men and women are of equal importance; if one become extinct in due time the other will cease to exist.
It is time for changes. It is time for stronger laws put in place that will protect women globally. The atrocities against woman must stop. Women across the world must stand together and demand equal rights and justice.
Every man on earth is born of a woman and men ought to respect that. A nation that fails to protect its women is a nation that in spite of all its achievements, has failed humanity. It is like a pig wallowing in its own filth, no matter what it does at the end of the day it is a disgrace to the human race.
