This week, Women Today explores the various factors that lead to respect and care among women. The basis for the theme is a result of concerns raised by mothers who have faced disrespectful care during childbirth. In a bid to create more awareness on the rights of women and their respectful treatment, a lot must be done.
Several Rwandan women are still kept in the dark when it comes to voicing out their rights. This is due to ignorance and illiteracy. However, several platforms have risen to empower women to speak out against injustices, whether it is in their personal lives, work places and at institutions designed to care for them such as health facilities.
Respect is a fundamental right of every human being. Without respect for people, care and empathy are void. Since people crave respect, they ought to treat others the way they want to be treated. Learning to respect your friends, colleagues, spouse and clients, is essential for the betterment of all human kind.
Without respect, chaos reigns and injustice rules. As you read this issue of Women Today, learn to play your part in making the world a respectful place.
