There are so many Traditional practices that are unsavoury, unhealthy and needs to be addressed.
Surprisingly, a look into these said Institutionalized acts are said to have been introduced by women.
Why do women suffer unjustly?
Why are the ills of this world blamed on them?
Why are women subject of abuse and object of abuse?
Can’t just understand.
Weird as it may sound;
Do you know that Women Institutionalized this act ; A Woman Drinking the water washed off from a her husband dead body to Prove Innocence.
Shaving off the hair of the Woman, wearing a Black Dress for a Period of Time, Sleeping on the floor for months.
This Barbaric act Have been practiced for so long.
And its Such an amazing thing that people who promote culture, people who believed that Christianity should be removed and replaced with Tradition accept and buy this Barbaric act against Women.
Infact Christianity made away most of the Barbaric Traditions, Practiced and Inflicted on Women.
They played a significant role.
Notwithstanding, my point of This Article, is , To appeal to Most Women, who still See the Need to Practice this Act, to do away with it.
Its not only Evil but inhumane.
Why Punish Someone for another one’s Death just to Prove a Point?
Don’t get it Twisted, Men endorsed this, when women brought this as an avenue to exonerate themselves and to prove innocency.
This is running into Generations and the Act is being Propagated.
I appeal to Women to have A collective Voice and Say Enough is Enough!
This Belief System needs to be abolished!
The Government Needs to come in and enforce the Abolishing of this Barbaric act against women!
And weird as it may seem, women have been the enemy to themselves, for centuries and they still cry, being oppressed by Male folks.
Don’t get it Twisted, men have also been in the Picture of Endorsing this.
So basically, Let’s quit the Blame game!
Let the Men Join the Women in Pushing for this Act to be totally and absolutely abolished!
The NGOs are doing their Bit but they Need More Voice From the People and The Government……
Let the women be there for each other not against each other.
Let the women be their sisters keeper.
This discussion shouldn’t stop and end on this blog but let it continue in our daily discussion.
I believe as Miss/Mrs A enlightens Miss/Mrs B one by one we would Change this system and restore The Pride of Womanhood.
We can , We should and We will.
For the peace and justice for our Future Girl Child.
