As this week is dedicated to this fight…..too old and still not defeated, I have coloured my background in orange and have selected a few portraits, old and new of happy girls and women, like all of them should be.
Even in my birth country, located in Europe and member of the EU there are tragical things still happening to girls and women of any age… The laws have always defeated rapists, killers and in general violence-lovers. The same goes for most of the other European countries, as I have seen during the past almost 45 years.
I do not understand either why violence and crime are everywhere on TV, in the press, in music even, in very many books…Even right now, while I am writing this, on an RTL channel there is a movie in which a male character is killing a female character….Then, all the marches and demonstrations in the world against violence that is directed to women, girls, kids, animals, men…will not help. On the one hand, such s… (sorry but I would even use a stronger world) should not appear anywhere, CRIME and VIOLENCE are NOT ENTERTAINMENT, are NOT FUN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am sick of those who are behind these movies, these programmes, this music, the selling of guns, etc. There is a whole big industry and people in the shade are earning a lot out of the CRIMES they indirectly commit. More recent, women/girls are killing themselves because of ”internet harassement”…another big stupidity to harm others… Certain people are promoting suicide online….what this world has become….
Anyway, to end up with a negative subject, the change must start from the head; the big leaders should also give an example…But check just for example how many presidents treat their wives….or other women. Most of them have mistresses and it is also the fault of those women who accept to be 2nd boats….Still, there is no respect anymore today, for anything, not only towards female individuals. There is no more education….Then, how do you expect to stop with violence? This starts at home, with parents, with the family. And if in many countries, most of the families own several guns or other weapons and there are kids of 3 years old who ”kill by mistake” what fight against violence can you do? Nothing…we have to take care of ourselves alone, to fight and to react the same way people react to us. I am a fighter and a strong person in general….. but it brings me a great deal of suffering every time I hear of a new female victim, in my home country or in any country of the world. Our planet’s human beings are worse than animals for too long now.
I hope that something will change to the better, as soon as possible. Along with my prayers for all the female individuals who have lost their lives so far, my hopes are going towards the ones who are living, that, together with them, there will be also men, politicians, artists, writers, scientists, educators and many others who will support this fight. Violence, in any form it happens, is the end of everything….the end of civilisation.
The photos are not mine, they have been collected from different public sources to which I am thankful for their courtesy.
