Please, don’t be quick to label me as a fanatic of the cause of the female struggle; it may not be totally my fault. Actually, the truth is that the pressure on the female gender seems to be so much, that some wonder sometimes that life is too much unfair to the gender. Let’s look at it this way; whatever the trouble in the world, the effect is heavier on the women than on…"Another Look At Women"
This is where the real focus of discourse is; let us, as women, take a critical look at ourselves and see if, one way or the other, we are not culpable. Years back, while I was doing a research on women issues in Africa and the effect of feminism, I came across a write-up which disparaged Western women as not being sincere in their efforts at fighting the women cause, since the women cause they…"LIVES ON THE FRINGES 2"
(This was written about two years ago, and still very relevant today. Enjoy.) Recently, in the course of my search for some of the materials for this website, I met a researcher, a university teacher, who works in the area of ‘Migrants’ and we had a very interesting discussion. It turns out that some of the issues that are of interest to us and which we are sourcing for materials for, he has done…"LIVES ON THE FRINGES 1"
Well, there may be a long way to having anything close to this, a ranking for women? May be, even almost impossible; unless, ranking in terms of level of oppression! However, let’s assume there is such an exercise, who will lead? No, wait, let’s start with what will be the requirements? And, who will set the standard for assessment? Men? Women? Now, what will be the basis for such ‘assessment’? Elite women or regular women?…"ARE MEN AFRAID OF WOMEN RANKING?"
I am not sure why I developed the interest in writing on this issue; for one thing, I am a very passionate supporter of everything that relate to women and girls. Secondly, the development of the female gender in any way remains the focus of my activity in any form. Therefore, anything that would promote the female gender will have my unflinching support, always. However, the news of the nomination of Malala Yousafzai, the 16-year-old…"MALALA and the NOBEL PEACE PRIZE"
When God created the man and woman, according to the Holy Book, His purpose was for them to live together in unity, love and peace; and to complement each other for a successful life. Whatever it was any individual chose to believe happened then, that original purpose was thwarted. Today, more than any other time in human history, male/female relationship is threatened beyond human capability. For the men and women of today, it is a…"THE MALE/FEMALE DICHOTOMY"
This is the age of computer, the digital age, where all the information and knowledge measured in terms of the digital values. Gone were the days when we greet, chat, debate, disagree or even love on extra-terrestrial, in the real world; not any more. Life now is lived ‘on the go’; via computers, I-pads, I-phones, android tablets, notebooks and the likes. Therefore, the quality of life is also defined by the quality of the digital…"AUTO SAVING TODAY’S LIVES: MOTHER’S DILEMMA"
The world has indeed become a global village; and life in one corner of the world can impact on another angle far away. Thus, a fad that takes off as a personal style in one small part of the world can easily become a big trend around the world in a couple of hours. As a result of this fact, it is becoming more and more difficult to be able to sustain an interest…"GLOBALIZATION: BRANDING THE MIND"
The International women’s Day had come and gone; however, we still have issues’ relating to this year’s theme on the front burner in several societies around the world. For many women around the world, change is something they have forever been on the lookout for; their lives have remained the same for as long as they can remember. Many do not even know what it means to live a good and unencumbered life as a…"CAN AFRICAN WOMEN INSPIRE ANY CHANGE?"
Having travelled a few countries of Africa, trying to rally women together for a cause that will benefit women and improve the status of African families, I can speak from experience about the response of women in general to such activity. Some people have observed that one of the very difficult tasks to carry out in life is to try to gather women together in a group for a cause, especially when the one leading…"RALLYING WOMEN"
