Gender Based Violence

By John Sensele

Gender bias and paternalistic culture pigeon-hole women negatively,
Emasculates society,
Numbs reason into submission,
Drives misogyny forward,
Expends brutal energy on hapless, helpless, hopeless victims,
Regresses progress in families, communities and societies.

Brutal force in conflict with civilised intercourse,
Affirms on women-friendly policies, processes, procedures and systems is essential,
Societal practices in need of systemic changes,
Enablers needed,
Denial of women rights is inimical to progress of humankind.

Violation of economic, emotional, financial, conjugal rights of women,
Iniquities with asymmetrical biases,
Overt and covert oppression,
Latent ill-treatment of women,
Exaggerated machismo needs excision,
Negative perception of women’s role,
Crucifixion of victims unnecessary,
Eradication of bad policies and practices is critical in curbing gender-based violence.
