I read this story yesterday. [click]
I remember a few years back meeting groups of women from a similar region. I remember wondering why they all spoke of having ailments of some kind.. until I heard thier about lives. In addition, a few mentioned abusive husbands.
In truth ( rightly or wrongly) I thought of thier husbands... as, Pigs.
When I walked away, I remember thinking. These hunched over women were 'beautiful' once.
Many were still in thier 40s!
I remember think also, how long it took for them to 'accept' me
I remember thinking...even with all your ailments, and crappy lives.. you still found the strength to display racism.
Women are not mules, and should never be used as such in my humble opinion.
The Guardian story speaks of many of these women losing thier jobs to men
my question is.. what the heck were the men doing before?
Lord have mercy
