My Op-ed thoughts: I realy need your help!!
Now I'm wondering whether to write about Domestic violence. I have grown up in the midst of it, with many close relatives affected by it. It has brought me pain, and maybe what I am today or the humble job that I have, is all because of my experiences.
At CREAW, we meet women from all walks of life, most of whom are poor and marginalized. they come for legal aid/ counseling.
Then there is my family, where I have seen women suffer in silence, afraid of speaking out. I may not have answers to their problems, but I know that I am angry. Angry that I do not want to experience what they experience.
So now, do I write about how it has affected me, How it has impacted most of their lives, or give answers to "how we have helped some of them? Are these even valuable angles? Is it too simple a subject to write about? will it sell?
Help me out!!
