Women As Images of the world

Violence directly targeting women because they are women should greatly be discouraged. No man who so ever has the right to inflict such a pain on a woman simply because of her dressing. How can a woman be stripped naked and forced to parade in the street and no action has being taken to punish the perpetuators in Kenya. African women voices should be amplified if women consider the violence against women in Africa as crimes as against human right. Women’s groups should be encouraged to take action by writing petitions for better laws for women in parliament and also to stage strikes actions letting their communities know such acts are bad and then advocating for better treatment for women. But also we are mothers, sisters, aunties, in-laws and women of the world. We should teach our girl children to live a descent and respectable lifestyles because they are the world of tomorrow. Discipline your children while they are young enough to learn .If you don’t you are helping them to destroy themselves. Homes are made by the wisdom of women but they are destroyed by foolishness. Someone who holds back the truth causes trouble, but one who openly criticizes works for peace.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring girls greater access to education which will transform their lives, their families, and communities. The Girls Transform Campaign elicits insightful content from young women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as women, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.

Creating Change

I completely agree that education needs to start in the home and often needs to begin with parents teaching their children to respect themselves and lead good lives. I also love that you note the importance of addressing women's rights from within the home as well as working to change society through the transformation of laws. After this perhaps the barrier to education will be eradicated.

I agree with you

women made up almost half of the world's population and if you want change target the women.The girls of today are tomorrow women and we must target the change we need from our children when they are young and will have a better world.
Thanks for your contribution

early education is so important, yet we spend so little time and money in prevention programs - it is a shame, really. I have adapted an old saying, "a penny of prevention is worth a pound of intervention"!

True Talks

This is a correction to the world's biggest social problems and if we as educators we could identify some ways of fitting moral education and respect for mankind,then we will be building a world of peace for all
