This post has been on my mind for quite a while. It is a very painful paradox that on one hand, societies and communities all over the world celebrate Women’s divinity, strength, beauty and wisdom, but on the other hand, women are assaulted, brutally raped, physically and emotionally abused. I have noted these atrocities in the history leaves of every society in every country. We can measure the depth of percolation of the value system in a society by looking at how the society treats Women, Children, and Prisoners Of War (POW), and it does not paint a pretty picture. Every society is failing and falling apart in this basic moral system.
Women are being looked down as objects of enjoyment and pleasure, more so in some sections of society laden with poverty, alcohol, drugs and struggle of survival. No matter the color, race, age, education factors, women are violated, abused, humiliated and their freedom mishandled. There is always apprehension for the physical safety of daughters and sisters. Newspapers all over the world are abound with such news of violation of Women’s honor. What a despicable condition !
