Whenever I am faced with a women related problem I feel I should contribute my little voice to, I think of world pulse. Not even my blog or my website.
Everytime I come on world pulse, I get excited by the inspiring stories I read, the different faces I see, the solor and diversity on display and most of all, the geniune love and unity it is creating.
Even though I did not see it when growing and all through my adult life, I have always believed that the phrase we have always be told that 'women are wome's greatest enemies' is just a ruse created by the world of men to divide us further and ensure we never get together.
Even though I grew up seeing my father's wives always at each other's throats with my mom taking the bulk of the misery as the first wife, I have always believed if only they could stop fghting and band together, thier husband would have been toast. Therefore, he would never let that happen lols. These were thoughts of an innocent preteen, but the older i grow, I have had cause to not only believe in it, but ponder on it.
If there is anything being married and rowing up in a polygamous home has taught me, is that NO MAN IS WORTH IT. Not my tears, not my peace of mind, and not my sister's peace of mind. Now, I look back and take stock of my life and realise that I have stuck to those beliefs even without knowing it.
My dear sisters, it is long overdue for us to change the narrative. We have to begin to sing a different song, 'WOMEN ARE WOMEN BEST FREINDS'. Women are not women's worst enemies, and never were. They were just playing to the gallery and manipulations of patricarchy and misogyny.
We have already began, I have seen as much on world pulse. We need to keep up the momentum and never stop. Because if we continue to believe women are women's worst enemies, nothing will change.
And more Maryam Sanda's will continue to emerge from our society.
