This week, a wife went to court for throwing the spectacles of another woman into a trench because her husband was rubbing the other woman’s face.
There has been much buzz this week about a new book, entitled “The End of Men and the Rise of Women,” by Hanna Rosin.
Last week, I wrote about local female musician Jackie Hanover, who has a song out that encourages women to be independent and to make a good life for themselves.
They say art is a reflection of society. If this is true, the local female musicians are proving that the women of this nation are on a good path.
I seldom talk about women’s issues in the United States in this column for one very important reason: there are so few columnists (if any) in Guyana who focus on the women’s issues of this country.
I am writing on racism today because I have seen it in all its cruelty and ugliness too often in recent weeks.
I have been in sports heaven this past week. I look forward to the Olympics for one reason only: to see women athletes perform on an international stage while the world watches intently.
I have seen it stated over and over that the breakdown of the family structure is the cause of domestic violence.
I had intended to write about Jackie Hanover’s great new song this week.
Recently, a friend posted on Facebook that she loved her life. I commented on her post, “You’ve made a good life for yourself.
The ongoing conversation on corporal punishment is of particular interest to me because I am a survivor of domestic violence at the hands of my own mother.
I have lamented time and time again about how victims of domestic violence have nowhere to turn for protection in Guyana.
Lately I have noticed a common grievance among certain men concerning gender equality.
Every week, this column celebrates women in all their glory, whether by highlighting the great things women accomplish and presenting her-story, or by underscoring the many injustices meted out to women and standing up for their rights.
I attended a meeting earlier this year that included a good number of women who are devoted activists and advocates for Guyana’s female population.
“When will it end?” This has been the ever-present question every time a woman is murdered by her husband/partner in Guyana lately.
I have been pondering the “purity” factor imposed on women for a couple of months now.
So guys, what do women think of your inappropriate workplace advances? Listen to a friend’s story about an incident that happened to her a couple weeks ago.
A woman died this week after law enforcement officers went through her Sophia neighbourhood shooting off their guns.
I often wonder how many women settle for relationships that are not mutually satisfying.
As I was casually browsing the many booths with information and goods from the various women’s organisations at the Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID) Conference in Istanbul, Turkey last week, I spotted some T-shirts that grabbed my attention.
Picture this: the world’s brightest women on economics coming together with thousands of women’s rights advocates from around the world to address the global economic situation as it applies to the female half of the world’s population.
The effects of the dismissal of the advice that a charge of rape be brought against Police Commissioner Henry Greene continue to ripple throughout the country and even beyond its borders.
Is anyone really surprised by the decision by acting Chief Justice Ian Chang to throw out the Director of Public Prosecutions’ advice that Police Commissioner Henry Greene—who has faced similar allegations in 1974 and 1994—be charged with rape?
Rape victims are not always ten-year-old little girls who couldn’t possibly have done anything at all to provoke the lust of a grown man (although this week’s headlines have those, too).
