It’s so sad that women and girls are not safe in this world. Everyday, we read stories of men who rape women and girls. These men feel entitled to women’s bodies.
Some of these rapists are lovers, boyfriends, relatives, neighbors, religious leaders, bosses, business associates, brothers and fathers.
They sexually assault women without thinking about how their actions will destroy the lives of these women and girls.
Sometimes, they turn the whole story against the victims by claiming they seduced them with their dressing. They refuse to take responsibility for their actions.
You will read a story of how a man has repeatedly sexually assaulted a young girl and instead of cheating his perversion, he will start blaming the devil. The devil made him do it.
What is the way forward? It is not enough to read such stories everyday, get angry, demand for justice for the victims and then move on with our lives.
What are we doing as a people to make sure that pedophiles and rapists never hurt another woman or girl again? What is the state governments doing to put an end to rape and sexual assault?
Do you blame women for getting raped because of their dressing or where they go? Do you make excuses for pedophiles and rapists because they are related to you?
