I know this isn’t the typical Happy Friday and light, fun fashion posts that I usually compose, but I read this article on CNN today and it affected me so much that I have to mention it. My heart goes out to the injustices and abuse that these women have to endure, all because of their gender. I know things like this probably happen more than we know, and in more places than we realize, but the fact that things like this exist and we barely take notice is truly tragic. I wish there was more I could do, and more our country’s governments would do to end the oppression of women in this manner. I so take for granted the freedoms I have to express myself through what clothes I choose to wear, how I do my hair and makeup, what perfume I want to apply, etc. I can’t imagine living in a world where those liberties are absent and punishable by death. I hope that soon something can be done to end these horrific conditions and women around the world will be treated like humans and not possessions to control. I also hope that in the future when I write my blog, I remember these issues and appreciate the gift of freedom more. Thanks for reading this.
