The Women Empowerment Uganda Females Stand For

By Stephanie Smith

Being a woman is perhaps harder than being a man. It seems ironic since women are considered the weaker sex. But when you think about what they have to go through all their lives, you start to realize that perhaps, society has got it all wrong, it is females who are the stronger sex. Even if it is not physically, but emotionally and mentally. Although females have lived in oppression for centuries, there are various organizations rising up in to aid the women empowerment Uganda females stand for.

Females from different walks of life and different parts of the world go through abuse. Although it may be experienced at a different level in third world countries, first world countries still have abuse. The women here however, go through it subtly. It doesn't make it any less painful, but it just means that they can pretend and keep it under wraps for longer.

This abuse takes many forms. Females in some countries are kept at home. Females as young as twelve years old are married off to men much older than they are. They are deprived of an education and worse still their childhood. In other countries they go through physical abuse and intimidation.

Although people are not aware of it, this abuse of females happens in first world countries as well. They just have a nice way of covering it up. It is also done on a more subtle note and females don't speak out because of embarrassment. They feel that somehow the abuse is partly their faulty, which is a wrong way of thinking.

Although mankind has made massive strides with regards to science, technology and medical history, men still remain primitive in various areas of social behavior. They still treat females as objects of slavery and pleasure and not as they partners and equals in life. Females who live in societies like these are constantly humiliated and ridiculed, although they are mothers and wives.

Yet the amazing thing about a woman is that she will always rise above the ashes. She she wipe away her tears, she will dust herself off and she will continue to pray and take care of her children, because she is not just a woman, but a mother. She is stronger than men think she is and she is not defeated, by beatings or verbal abuse. She may be knocked down, yet she is not knocked out.

Females do have a lot more tolerance than men do. They go through a lot and still have the job of carrying and giving birth to children. There are organizations and empowerment groups rising up all over the world to stop abuse against females and empower them to live a better quality of life.

If you know of any females that are going through abuse of any sort, let them know that help is at hand. They will never break free from the cycle of abuse unless they stand up for themselves. They should also know that this is not just for them, but is is for their children as well.
