You are Not His Property

We are living in the twenty-first century but what progress as people can we say we have made when men are keeping women enslaved. This is not about race, color or class. Women from every area of society have at one point or another found themselves subjected to abuse from men. Age is of little relevance, as long as you are a woman you are at risk.

In spite of human rights laws and legislation little girls mere children themselves are married off to grown men, sentenced to a life of hard labor and abuse with no hope of an education. In some instances once married the woman becomes the property of the man. She has no voice, she has no say. He is her lord and master and his every command she must obey. As his property he happiness is not important. Her job is to make him happy and take care of his every need.

It is time for women to stop accepting less than they deserve. In some abusive relationship when ask why they stay a woman may respond “I love him.” You may love the man but while you are busy loving him who is loving you? In reality a woman does not need a man anymore than he needs her. You may feel hurt, disappointed, betrayed and lonely but at the end of the day you are alive and life goes on.

Sometimes, somewhere out there something good is waiting for you but if you remain trapped in an unhappy relationship you will never experience it. Don’t be like a welcome mat and allow him to walk all over you. The change will come only when women begin to stand up for themselves and say enough is enough.

  1. Have you read Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn’s book, Half the Sky? It is an inspirational look at this problem and the men and women tackling it all over the world.
