Women justifiably lose hope
Resistance to change takes sting out of anti-GBV campaign
November 25-December 10 marks the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children campaign. This year, from my experience, women have rejected and disapproved of this period more than most years. Because for women, it has not resulted in tangible change. For women, conditions are still the same, if they aren’t worse off. One cannot blame women for feeling this way because the objective indicators such as abuse, rape and femicide statistics correspond with their feeling. I think women are exhausted, and rightfully so.
