✨🌹Violence Against Women – by, teleSUR English🌹✨

“WOMEN!!!”

“We are your Mothers, Sisters, Aunts, Grandmothers,

Wives, Cousins, Fiancés, Girlfriends & Daughters. We bring forth & nurture LIFE & LOVE. We deserve to be treated better & decently. A World and or Society that treats women; the carriers of life, poorly? Shall be reduced to nothing.”~Maxwanette A Poetess

“Namastè & One Love”❤️💛💚

Since 1981, Latin America commemorates every 25th of November the day against gender-based violence. The feminist movements of the region, with one of the highest rates of violence against women, coined that date in honor of Dominicans Minerva, Patria, and María Teresa Mirabal, three sisters murdered and tortured on November 25, 1960, by order of the dictator Rafael Leonidas Trujillo, whom they opposed. Years later, in 1999, the UN joined the day of protest and declared every 25th of November the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, in honor of the Mirabal sisters.

November 25 is a day of pain and anger, a day of protest and vindication, but also a day of solidarity and desire to conquer an authentic equality between women and men.

On this day, teleSUR has compiled some quotes of feminist authors and activists from different countries. We want to raise our voices this November 25 because we do not want a setback and a lack of protection of the rights of all women, who with so much sacrifice and struggle have overcome many obstacles.

✨🌹Domestic Violence Is Real🌹✨

“I support many causes. Domestic Violence (DV), is one of the most important ones. I grew up watching my father, beating my Mother. My Mother always fought back. By the time I was 3 years old, she had enough & divorced my father. But in our culture (Jamaican), beating & abusing Women was the norm. Sadly it’s still in full practice & many fail to see or care to the lives taken, damages done to Women & Children. It can last a lifetime.

This did however have an affect on me. I was never physically abused by any man. Instead I became hardened, defensive, combative, over protective & willing to fight to the death at the drop of a hat. Men were scared of me. This was the purpose to protect myself, but I experienced other forms of abuse;verbal, emotional, psychological & by monetary means. I lost my femininity, and marinated in my masculinity, simply to survive…

These experiences tainted my views of self & life. This poem derived from this experience & finally breaking free from the hold it had on my existence.”~Maxwanette A Poetess
