Part 3 - Woman to Woman

Posted by Patrice Smith

 Warning: The video below contains graphic imagery. Viewer discretion is advised.


Seen above is the violence inflicted on women by their male counterparts in many parts of the world everyday. After seeing the above video I was left heartbroken. It is disheartening to see the unjust treatment that some of our women face. Why is it that women continue to suffer these brutal attacks? Why does it seem like nothing is being done to help these women?
If you re-call in a previous post, I recommended that my viewers read the book 'Half The Sky'. It highlights some of these very issues that women face all around the world, but incorporates different organizations and causes that we all can get involved in and become a part of the solution to do what ever we can to help. Going up against the greatest barrier to emancipation of women, are the arcane laws, coupled with the misogynistic culture that permeates the landscape of their respective countries. Despite such a task, as human beings, we must remain vigilant to raise awareness whenever the opportunity presents itself. While women here in the US may not be faced with such brutal arcane systems, we do have our issues here in the US that we must overcome as well. It is my belief that if everyone, male and female, continue to do their part to stamp out injustice of women over the world , this world will be a much better place.

    This world is truly in a sad state of affairs if we continue to sit by and do nothing or little to nothing while this madness continues. How will these men feel if the shoe was reverse?
