About

Welcome to MARVA SEATON BLOG.  It is my goal will to make this blog as entertaining, informative and interesting as possible.  Feel free share your thoughts and comment on any topic that you find of interest. My time on WordPress so far has been very interesting.  I feel like I know some of you even thought we have never met.  I do appreciate everyone who has visited my blog and take time out to read my posts make a comment or click the like box. I want you to know that I do enjoy reading your posts as well.  I look forward to interacting and sharing even more with you my fellow bloggers.  God bless you all!

I will be focusing on drawing awareness to violence against women worldwide.  The rape and subsequent of a 23-year-old young woman in India in December, 2012 was a real eye opener.  It drew the attention of the world. This incident however is just the tip of the iceberg.  The callous and inhumane treatment of women around the world need to STOP.   The stories of rape and other atrocities must be told. Societies must change the way women are treated. If you have a story please feel free to share it.  Let us unite and say NO to violence against women.

    I very much enjoy your blog. The other day a fellow blogger nominated me for The Reality Blog Award. In turn, I am nominating you. I am writing about it on my blog, http://weinstein365.wordpress.com tomorrow (Saturday). While there are no set ‘rules’, there are a few questions. I am not sure that you are obliged to answer them, but they’re kind of fun. Up to you.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    My relevant post : https://fatbeggars.wordpress.com/2015/11/25/the-struggle-of-rape-survivors-educates-me/

    I will be back…
