Wife or mother,or wife and mother?

Hello,

And God said, "It is not good that man should be alone!" Plunged into a sleep so deep, Adam has never reported what was said and actually passed betweent Creator and Eve.
I say then, that the woman taken from the rib of man, received a mission from God it will be very noble.Certes mother, but also helps semblable.Une life partner, a friend, a mother who has given the ability to get up if she falls and start a new operation different from the first, to fight and overcome the obstacles which they may be to always give a smile, love, laugh, and consolation. Like a dove, she brings the love by spreading the sweetness, the tenderness in his way, by sacrificing himself for the welfare of the people she loves and is sensitive to the suffering and pain of others because is a mother.

Indeed, every mother is a woman but every woman is mother! The case of a woman who face ridicule, agrees to let his children starve in order not to suffer, it is a woman and not a mother as a mother facing all that stands before her as barriers to protect his household. The other woman, according to a biblical example, requiring that the child she argues with her neighbor was killed and divided into two pieces, is not a mother. A mother is the one who agrees to see her child alive and healthy even being away from her!

There are also mothers, certainly never given birth but who have in them the essence of mother femme.Dans this category you will find women sterile for example, but more concerned with the children of others more than their biological mothers, who in that time, no longer than women who have completed the order of giving birth, forgetting the greatest of all, "love your neighbor as yourself"!

All women who care about the plight of other women around the world in their cities, towns and countries they have an essence, that of mother.
So congratulations to you dear friends of WP who are fighting to get ideas and ideals to the woman, the girl and the children are not intrumentalisés, much less marginalized and deprived of certain basic rights, but rather that all are entitled to a life similar to that of man: right to education for girls, not to the feminization of HIV / AIDS, yes literacy of older women, yes to learn a trade, no to prostitution, yes to human justice worthy of the name, ...

In Kinshasa, last year, a woman aged 55 received a bachelor's degree. Mother and grandmother, she had to leave the bench because the school forced to marry young at the age of 15. Despite this, she held in her dream, and she had her degree, an example of courage and perseverance that can inspire not only in the case of the school, but in many others because the lesson is: "To want is power!"

As women and mothers, fix our eyes on each of our goals, regardless of the barriers we encounter on our way, we will succeed!

I think every woman must to

I think every woman must to be what she decides to become in. Marriage, children, profession, are options, and must to rest like that. We must to work together in a struggle againts that models, organizations and people that want to keep a status quo based in non-equality roles and the lack of freedom of a part of humankind. Peace comes only after justice, truth and freedom arrive. Warms Regards

One's life has value so long as one attributes value to the life of others, by means of love, friendship, indignation and compassion

Hi Rosie,

I think women should be courageous, perseverance in pursuing the things that make us happy. To be a wife should be a matter of choice. In Africa, societies perceive married women as 'responsible' and based on that women see being a wife as priority and primary thing that qualifies them as women. Because women are desperate to get married to men, this makes men cheat on women. It also promotes domestic violence and wife battering. I have a colleague from Zimbabwe who is a wheelchair user. She shared with me her experience on how a man come to her to deceive her with marriage. Because she also want to be a 'responsible' woman, the man would have his way into her and abandon her with the pregnancy. It was a repeated case and she have three children from different men. Today, she is a mother but unhappy with her situation of motherhood.
This promotes domestic violence as wives who wow men into marriage are not valued by the spouse. In my Igbo society in Nigeria, men see women as less value especially when the women forced herself into the marriage. I have a case of a woman who is always battered by her husband. When her case was brought to my office by her medical doctor as she was in coma, I called through to the husband with the number given to me by her sister. The husband vowed on phone that if the wife do not withdraw the case from the human rights office and also come to beg him for forgiveness, he will never marry her again. Indeed when the wife came round, she asked me not to call her husband again and not to take the case up. She wants to remain a 'responsible' woman by remaining married.

GREETINGS

JUST TO RESPOND TO EVERYONE

Happy and thankful really to read all your posts, this site is amazing and can say that I have truly gained a lot of information that can help me for our organisation & women of the World who I meeting more of. For this I give thanks.

Sistah Rosie,when you mentioned wife and mother, I would like to commend you and celebrate this I am very much into the unification of relationships between male and female to create balance. We must not become afraid to air our points of view for fear of retribution,sometimes from other women, its ok to disagree too, for then you can move on.

The points about violence against women, are also noted. In my experience of managing a large Women s community centre , sometime individuals who have negative experiences often manifest this in relationships, especially if the opportunity to receive counsel is not available. This applies to both male and females, its for them to break that repetitious pattern of behaviour.

While we are on the subject of manifestations let me write about what happened in the UK recently.

No doubt you have all heard about the disturbances in the UK lately all my comments can say at this point

" For every cause there is an effect" For every effect there is the cause!

From the outside looking in there is an assumption that the West has everything our collective developing nations do not, and there for better off in some areas in balance this is untrue.

The reality is that everything here is not alright, we have a major divide of class & poverty, there are families here living on such low wages they cannot afford to eat, and work they must to keep a roof over their heads. There are also children who dont have one hot meal a day, there are also communities living on the streets.

All this and more, so can you imagine all the above, and more, impacted by the effects of racism, for the ones who are effected by this every waking moment, is a real challenge, so some give up and end up in the mental health institutions.

Its not a glass ceiling for us but a concrete one, operated at will against family members male and female, our young men and young women, and our elders. Through the judicial system, the media including non-access to basic items such as a roof over ones head, or rights to legal advice, using racist immigration under terrorist legislation to reach their objectives.

That is why this opportunity is more than a website to me, it creates the opportunity for discussion change and collaboration, within this we can also share experiences and learn from them to make our one world a better place for our children our future, do we really overstand the concept of the butterfly effect?

What legacy can we say we have gifted our children? I will down load a copy of the latest Geneva C.E.R.D response to Race Equality status here in the UK.
( this will have to be a compressed file)

Joining organisations and contributing is one of the items I feel is very important

Goodnight my Sisters

Thanks to everybody

Hello to all my sisters

Big thank you to all for your contributions.
I want to make a clarification or details to my sister Céline and I thank once again for his opinion.
I'm not saying and not saying that to be responsible, a woman must be married, noooooooooooooo! Before I married I was personally responsible for my family and my father had more on me than on boys! So a married woman or not, shall not be liable if it has in it the sense of responsibility we're talking about, because there are married women and not at all respectable and responsible!
When I say wife and mother, I am referring to the many women, single, religious, widowed, married, but they just have a high sense of responsibility comparable to that generally attributed to the "real mothers", that almost no women who are mothers or just to have procreate children, but mothers because of their sensitive heart, responsible, caring and willing to sacrifice for the welfare of the other.
This kind of woman, even though it has never given birth herself, although she is not married, a situation that touches deep into her mother's heart, then act like a mother!
Justice, truth, peace and fairness are values ​​that can be found in every woman, every mother, every human being, but the degree of understanding of the different terms of each other.

An example, without making judgments about the person: "The case against ND DSK. Today, after his release, DSK said the truth had been restored. What are we talking about truth, for truth it - even being on everyone pulling the strings on his side.
Still speaking of DSK, Banon Tristane complaint in France.Et his mother, who had forbidden him eight years earlier at the time, now says he wants justice to be done! What justice does it speak? And in this case, personally, I would say it did not act as a mother, but as a woman, because although the biological mother of Tristan, she could not understand eight years ago, feeling that would be worth or inner suffering of his daughter, for asserting personal interests! Perhaps if this young lady was able to confide in material time a mother, that is a woman, single or married, that is not the issue, but mother, having in it the essence of "mother", it would have been advised that should and would not you wait for eight years after. "

Married or not, religious or not, the essence of mother is something that does not or allows itself does not come with its social, marital, or anything else, it is innate.

I can say without fear of contradiction that this species is animated, the women leaders in WorldPulse this great network that drives us today has been possible and work because all these women who have worked have sacrificed and continue to make sacrifices precisely because they have this ideal. This ideal may be derived from several shares, but shares that have found this species that lived deep within each, which was precisely to serve others.

So I return to my sentence, every mother is a woman, but every woman is not mother!

Thank you !

Rosie

wel-done !!
meaning full article, wide-range thought
"every mother is a woman but every woman is mother! The case of a woman who face ridicule, agrees to let his children starve in order not to suffer, it is a woman and not a mother as a mother facing all that stands before her as barriers to protect his household. The other woman, according to a biblical example, requiring that the child she argues with her neighbor was killed and divided into two pieces, is not a mother. A mother is the one who agrees to see her child alive and healthy even being away from her!

Rosie,
Vous avez bien dit pour une mère qui se sacrifié pour que le monde retrouve la paix c'est une femme à louer par Dieu et même son mari la loue quand il se présente avec ses amis à la maison.
