Sheer madness

I wish the leaders of the nation would spend as much time talking about and fighting over women as they have spent on the Amaila Falls project.

Caught in the middle

I have seen it too many times for my taste. It saddens me to the core to think that a woman–a mother–could use her own child as an instrument to harm the child’s father.

Victim blaming

A Sister sent an email to me and other Sisters this week with a link to an article that was printed in the August 5th Kaieteur News, titled, “Following spate of domestic violence… Don’t leave our men out of the counseling set-up.” While this Sister completely agreed with the notion in the article of involving the men in the process of eliminating domestic violence, she was outraged at what a “community leader” had to say about the role women play in being beaten and murdered.

Blurred Lines

The images that some young women use for their social media profiles are very disturbing and one day when they are older, they will regret putting those pictures in the public domain for the world see.

The story of a South Sophia woman who is a victim of domestic violence hit me hard this week when it was apparent that she and her children had no place to go after the father of her child brutally beat her.

Whew! What a week this has been. First we find out Simona Broomes, President of the Guyana Women Miners Organisation (GWMO), finally gets the recognition that she and her group deserve from the US Secretary of State for being heroes in demonstrating the courage and willingness to save women from being trafficked in Guyana.

The Faith Harding factor

In recent years there have been numerous reports about the difference between female leadership and the traditional male leadership to which the human race has been subjected for centuries.

When someone tells you how much they care about you, it is always wise to take stock of their actions to decide if those actions actually correspond with the honey-dripping words coming from their mouths.

Wear your age with your head held high

Stella Says

In a 1998 Gallup survey, 51% of American women between the ages of 50 and 65 who had reached menopause said they were happiest and most fulfilled at this stage of their lives, as compared to when they were in their 20s (10%), 30s (17%) or 40s (16%).
