‘A silent majority of men disapproves of violence’, Radwan Chowdhury

“What are Ordinary Men Willing to Do to End Violence Against Women & Girls?”   Most men do not use violence against women, and most believe such violence to be unacceptable. A silent majority of men disapproves of violence, but does little to prevent it. Of most concern, significant numbers of men excuse or justify violence against women.

The Single Mum Status is so empowering … Zimbabwe

Every woman longs to be loved and to be cherished. But sometimes, life is not always the way she wants it to be especially when it comes to matters of the heart and this is why she finally opts for the 'single mother' status, which in my belief is so empowering. Sometimes she gets scared that she is not going to get it right and so compromises her position especially in meeting new love prospects... ... it can be empowering but also terribly lonely. Although society at times might … [Read more...]
