The domestic abuse of women makes you want to question some doctrines and culture that will preach to you to stay there and survive it even when it’s not getting better, it’s heartbreaking how these women suffer in the hands of who they once love or maybe still love, that person that now abuse them and stealing their dignity.
This edition of Allure relate the issue of domestic abuse in their editorial cover
One in every 3 women faces domestic abuse… We live in a society where people would rather die In silence than speak their minds and be set free… It is very important that woman run away from any relationship that is built on abuse whether physically or emotionally… Most women end up dead before their stories are told to the public by witnesses who could have helped save them from early or premature death… Speak now!!!
Just like a leopard cannot change its spots or a tiger it’s stripes, so will a misogynistic psychopath not be able to change his inert behavior… Chioma had seen the warning, signs, it was staring right in the face but how could she notice them? She was more concerned about being Mrs Somebody, her parents taunted her, her family made light jokes about her age and not been able to get married… Her friends were all married with kids so she lived a life of constant comparison. She had finally hooked the big fish, a three time divorcee. he had shown his hatred for woman but she stayed… After a minor argument, Mr Somebody has shot Chioma and dumped her in an alley
