Opinion

To All The Women

This is to all the women,
That have been silenced.
That are heavy with unnecessary burdens.
That live under the shadows of men.

That are raped.
That are abused.
That are stuck in the background.

That get paid less than they deserve.

That are disrespected.
That are treated like trash.
That are hurt.
That are molested.
That are denied job opportunities because of their gender.

This is to all the women
that deserve more.
It’s time!
Time to CHANGE THE NARRATIVE!

If you can read this, you’re aware of (or in) the crisis that women face everyday. At least once in a lifetime, one in three women worldwide has experienced physical or sexual violence. Most times it is considered normal and left unpunished.
Violence against women is one of the most widespread human rights violations in the world. We have to fight! We have to speak up! We have to push back. We will not be silent. We will continue to seek justice!

A tutte le donne

Questo è per tutte le donne,
Che sono state messe a tacere.
Che sono marchiate di ferite.
Che vivono sotto le ombre degli uomini.

Che vengono stuprate.
Che subiscono abusi.
Che vivono nell’ombra degli uomini.
Che vengono pagate meno di quanto meritino.

Che vengono trattate in rispettosamente.
Che vengono trattate come spazzatura.
Che vengono ferite.
Che vengono molestate.
Che hanno negate le opportunità di lavoro a causa del loro sesso.

Questo è per le donne
Che meritano di più
È giunta l’ora!
L’ ora di CAMBIARE LA STORIA!

Se puoi leggere questo, sei consapevole della crisi che le donne affrontano ogni giorno.
Almeno una volta nella vita, una donna su tre ha subito violenze fisiche o sessuali.
Troppe volte queste cose sono considerate normali e restano impunite. La violenza sulle donne è una delle violazioni sui diritti umani tra le più diffusa al mondo. Dobbiamo combattere! Dobbiamo farci sentire! Non resteremo in silenzio. Continueremo a cercare giustizia!

    Wonderful writing! We as women deserve way more than we get at times. I have seen us treated unfairly in the workplace. I’m praying for women worldwide who are being abused and mistreated. Thanks Bukola! ❤️

    Thank you Bukola for speaking up couragiously against the injustices to women. Most women are dying in silence especially the sexually harrassed and the victims of domestic violence. They lack the courage to speak up.Some of them only speak up very late in life. May God give them all courage to stand up and say no.
