Hi Samantha thanks for visiting my blog and thank you also for the nomination,
Looking forward to reading your articles. I totally agree the war on women needs to be address! The question that needs to be asked ‘is why are men killing and raping women of any age in the daylight hours?! Personally I believe it is a spiritual issue that has not been looked at before! We know about how education and economics can empower women in our small global world yet women and young girls are still being killed and rape at a faster rate then every before why is that?!
The problem is that in the countries where it is happening the most women are often denied an education. They are treated like second class citizens and do not have the freedom of making their own decisions. Often the laws to protect women are not properly enforced.
Hej from Sweden!
I think your blog is great and very important. I will be back.
Thank you for stopping by my blog and liking a recent post.

Hi! thank you for stopping by my blog today 🙂
You are welcome!
Hello Marva, I am so pleased you stopped by and liked one of my posts.If you had not I would not of found your blog. You are writing the truth about the terrible things that are happening now as we speak to women and children around the world.
I have written a few posts on these subjects but my knowledge is limited so I am interested to see what you have to tell us. I have included a few of my posts on child brides, female circumcision ( butchery) child slavery, child soldiers, and women coping with famine I hope they may be of interest, I hope I have got my facts right . I have done these posts in verse because poetry is a medium I love but I can write in prose too.
I have also written about physical and mental abuse in marriage,depression and suicide and all sorts of mental anguish. I have written happy and silly things too!
Be blessed and be happy and be brave you are doing important work. willow. xx

You are welcome Rajat and thanks for visiting my blog appreciate the feedback.
Thanks for caring. Rape and violence against women is a pressing concern. I care about it too, though it is not the cause I champion. Nevertheless, it has come up on my radar a few times. I took a course in Rape investigations last year. Wrote a couple of papers etc…
yes. I care too.
I only touched on it once on my blog. Actually related it to my ministry in homeless ness. I recognize that both causes struggle against apathy and/or scorn.
