You are no better
Remove my fetter
Unchain- let go
Annihilate me not
You ARE you
Because of me
Let me be
If I be shell
You be pearl
Mother of pearl!!
Why loot self
Your own turf-
If I am snuffed
YOU will cease
Be not a goon
You are seeded
In my ground

As a human rights issue, the effort to end violence against
women becomes a government’s obligation, not just a good idea.

The psychology of brutality was worse than the beatings.
John Blair American, Politician
You do not lead by hitting people over the head.
That’s assault, not leadership.

Rape is the practice,
battered women are the practice,
and battered children are the practice.

Rape, mutilation, abuse, and theft are
the natural outcome of a world in which
force rules, in which human beings are objects.
