Domestic abuse is an incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening, degrading, and violent behavior. It is very common. In the vast majority of cases, it is experienced by women.
Unfortunately, domestic abuse or violence against women is on the rise these days.
What a pity, that a woman who gets married out of love also has to face it. There’s my best friend who went against her family and got married to the guy she loved.
Should violence be suffered or vocalized?
Ever since I gained consciousness and life acted as an eye-opener for me, I have been keenly observing the words ‘patience’, ‘tolerance’, and ‘adjustments’, ‘compromise’ are solely associated with women.
Before getting hitched, we’re lectured about spending entire life ahead with compromises & inducing flexibility in our disposition. We are taught to make adjustments in all kinds of circumstances putting our self-worth at stake too if the times call for so.
We are instructed to keep personal matters (related to married life) to ourselves, which is a good notion.BUT what if the matters consist of abuse, violence, curse & toxic relationship?
Should a woman keep mum about such things? For how long she should stay silent?
Domestic violence IS NOT a private matter whether it happens within the four walls of a home or out in the open. Call people out on it please so if nothing else at least they will feel some shame!
I wasn’t in favor of the #AuratMarch coz of the reasons. But now I need to march for myself, for my daughter, for future generations.
That’s okay if some of the women don’t want to be a part of the #AuratMarch2020, but please don’t belittle those who march for OUR rights.
