Freedom of Women
Women share a lot with men. The scars and anxieties imposed on us by poverty, as wives and mothers, it falls upon us to make small wages go a long way. Women carry the burden of ensuring that things run smoothly in the households. They have to ensure that their children do not go hungry. We know that traditionally, the burden to look after children and land when our husbands are away, in the mines and the farms, falls on women. We know the bitterness of our children growing up without proper education.
Women have had to pay the price. The liberation of women demands that we free women from sexism, oppressive language and other forms of discrimination that are packaged as transcended truth or ancient wisdom. That is what our times require, that is what the new generation of the soul warrants.
