Inspired by personal experience
I will say it again and again there is no form of justification for rape or sexual molestation than the rapist. Having experience such at a tender age, where my innocence was forcefully taken and exchanged for a piece of meat pie. I thought to myself where exactly did we get it wrong, has being a woman made us less of a human? Where our bodies have been commonized and subjected into a piece of cake or toy to be played with by these men when they are bored or horny.
Gone are the days of ignorance where dressing and religion is seen as a preventive measure or safe space for such circumstances. My body is owned by me and me alone, nobody has the right to touch it without my consent.
I remembered how my mum engaged me in a discussion about how frightened and scared she was, concerning my little sister who is almost at the peak of adolescent and how she cautioned her to be very vigilant and watchful against such, In her words she called them “vultures” (untamed men) who were not nurtured from their young on how to treat and respect women. This saddens me what my little sister had to go through knowing that it isn’t safe and even more dangerous growing up as a girl child. So I asked, how long do we continue to live like this, in a world where women are constantly being abused, raped and being blamed for. How long shall we live in silence, fear, shame and stigmatization.
This painting is a visual representation of women who have been victims of this sort and how they bottled it all up, afraid to speak. Yes, it wasn’t your fault we believe you and encourage you to share. We can’t afford to get this wrong again as there is room for improvement and we can only do better by supporting each other in creating more awareness thereby making our environment more comfortable and safe for everyone to live in.
