Femicide – Why men kill women

It took me a while to post about Femicide because when the topic initially came into my mind, I was filled with rage and nothing I had to say about it then was rational. Femicide – the killing of women by men on account of gender. I don’t think the question “why do men kill …

She’s not crazy, just very expressive

I confess, I’ve had my moments where I thought I acted a tad crazy. I’ve sent a few “have a nice life” texts and done many other things too embarrassing to talk about but this is what I’ve concluded: women are not crazy, we are just very expressive. Guys would probably roll their eyes at …

Her Silence

I was in Swaziland a few days ago and had the privilege to walk through a typical Swazi village and learn about the culture. Its such a colourful nation and I appreciated the terrain because I was so used to the concrete of the city of Johannesburg. The tour guide spoke about the role of …

Choose You

I was reading a post the other day and it was describing what life is like when you are in your 20's. The real meaning of life starts to become clearer. Those family secrets that were kept from you because you were too young are now being revealed. We all have different experiences but one …

Cat Fight

I was at a woman’s event a few months month ago and I was really moved by what one of the speakers had to say about women and how they interact with each other. After listening to her I took time to observe people and it turns out we really do have issues within our …

When I turned 30

All I can say is “I wasn’t ready”. It’s now 3 months after my 30th birthday that I can actually talk about turning 30 and what I think it means me. I look at myself in the mirror and think I look the same, nothing different from the day I turned 21 which is a …

Have boundaries

Someone I know, who’s close to me and laughs with me every day told me her husband beat her up yesterday just because she confronted him about his recent cheating. That broke me because she is such a beautiful soul. People commend her for the fact that she’s always smiling. Why would he cheat on …

AFRICAN WOMAN

Phenominal read by Tembeaworld

Hello beautiful people,

I am writing about an african woman because her experiences are neglected or sugarcoated by our norms and societal standards.
Our African woman works tirelessly for the good of everyone in the society but herself.From a young age…she is ‘trained’ to serve the boys first,then later when they are comfortable..come serve herself food.We have trained the African woman to love herself last,take care of herself last and to never complain….shut her mouth always.Her experiences are always the ‘other.. less important experiences’….so the society does not have to listen in.

God forbid she gets pregnant before marriage…..’she is a loose woman…she has a child with no father….one thing we…
