I love courageous women out there to change the world; be it politically, socially, economically or otherwise.
These are women challenging the paternalistic societies that are dominant worldwide. In small measures are my friends like Sithule Tshuma who have it their goal to improve fellow women’s socio-economic status in the UK and in Zimbabwe. In a large way, I may not be a big fan of Grace Mugabe, but her boldness to challenge the ruthless male dominated African politics in Zimbabwe can not go unheralded.
The last two decades have seen Africa having a number of female leaders; Malawi, Liberia, Somalia, Burundi, Senegal, Rwanda and Mozambique. South Africa and Zimbabwe may join the list.
But in all this, what is amazing is the continued abuse of women; emotionally, sexually and economically. Why do women not uplift each other, and help each other to end to pervasive abuse in society? Poverty affects women more, and they bear the brunt of hard labour in the homes, yet still, women in power seem unable to help their fellow women out of this quagmire.
All issues I read about relating to women concern abuse, rape or women performing equally beastly acts on each other. Is there a possible answer to this? Who can change the status of women if they cant do it for themselves?
