A message to think not a minute but more
On November 25th – International day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

Not a minute moreWomen don’t need a another day
marked in the calendar to celebrate
the brutal violence
they come across in their lives.
They don’t need round table meetings
to talk about her worries and forget about them.

As a daughter, she’s underestimated by her father
As a sister she’s ignored by her siblings
As a friend she is envied for her true self
As a colleague she is oppressed for her talents
As a wife she is not appreciated by her husband
As a mother she is ill treated by her children

What is in a woman’s life?
Other than being discriminated for her existence..
There’s more to a woman
even more, than she, her self has not realized..

Today is the Int’l day for
the Elimination of Violence Against Women.
For those who don’t know
it is all forms of discrimination Sexual, Emotional, Physical and much more
Think not a minute but more about
what you have done to
your daughter,
your sister,
your friend,
your colleague,
your wife,
your mother?

Give her respect in the society
Treat her with equality
Acknowledge her for what she does at work
Appreciate for the simple meal she cooks at home
Encourage her when she is down with worries
Do her justice when she needs to be heard

This is a message not only to all men
but to all women
Who find it difficult
to understand another woman
