It is very sad to witness women and children mostly girls do the bulk of the work where I live but they do not get paid or appreciated. I sense or rather feel that those around them just do not see what these women and children do as work but part of the receivers being entitled to it Since in the absence of girls the boy children fill these roles
Till the land care for the fields farm harvest Fetching firewood fetching water cook for allthe family Ensure there is food for the family They look after the chickens goats cattle This surprises me because these women and children do not earn wages outside the home to support these families In homes where there are goats cattle chickens you often here the man say in these are his he is head of the household??
Women especiallyin laws perpetuate these practices I mean the mother in laws and sister in laws even if they do not live with the familiesHow does one start to educate these women who happily suppress and frustrate women and children ???
