All over the world women and girls daily suffer all sorts of abuse. Sexual abuse, Sexual violence, harassment and worse even death. In some countries women are less valued than men. In some cultures men equate women to their live stock. Women & girl’s especially in Africa still live under gender oppression and only valued for sex and child bearing.
We have seen and heard how some prominent men have taken pride to the fact they have groped women on their private parts. The behavior of seeing women as men’s toys must come to an end. Through The African woman Foundation (TAWF) my wishes are to see a world where no girl or woman has to live under gender oppression A world free of all forms of abuse and violence Against girls and women. Where the African woman and girl is not viewed as an object of man’s sexual gratification.We believe how the boy child is raised today is what lays the foundation of how he will treat the woman tomorrow when he a full grown man.We advocate for a world were the value of every woman is NOT in home care, sex and child bearing. But in what she can do when empowered and independent to contribute to society. We invite you to come on board as we make a difference for the women and girls today, tomorrow and the future.
I invite you to join us on this journey to changing The Way Society Treats Its women. Let us all work together in changing the way as society we treat our girls and women starting from the home, community, society, Nations and the whole World.Cases of Gender based violence are daily reported for both men and women. However over 90% of those cases are perpetrated by men against women.
# REMEMBER THE VALUE OF WOMEN IS NOT IN SEX OR CHILD BEARING. BUT IN WHAT THEY CAN CONTRIBUTE TO SOCIETY WHEN FULLY EMPOWERED AND INDEPENDENT
