Being Woman

In Sudan, they forced her to marry a man she didn’t want. When she wouldn’t surrender to him, he raped her with the help of his cousins. The next time he tried to rape her, she stabbed him. Now she’s been sentenced to death.

Frailty; thy name is a woman.


In Jordan, he used his high ranking position to rape and blackmail a married woman. One day, when she tried to run away from him and seek refuge in a friend’s house. He brought his tribal cousins and beat the friend’s brother to within an inch of his life. The assaulted man’s tribe got angry and gave the entire government a three day ultimatum. Other tribes joined them in condemnation. Not because of the rape but for violating the ancient law of giving refuge.

Frailty, thy name is woman.

In the Somali Ethiopian region, a man opposing the tyrannical rule of crazy Abdi Illey, tried to meet with the Ethiopian authorities to make a complaint. Abdi Illey retaliated by hanging the man’s niece. Not because she was guilty of any crime but simply to teach him a lesson.

Frailty, thy name is woman.

She went to school and worked hard to achieve the results that will allow her the rare opportunity to attend a university in the USA and have a successful future. But the despicable charlatan that is Coldoon decided to post her pictures all over social media and imply that she ditched (or will ditch) her faith and culture. Not because he has any personal grudge against her but simply to fulfill an agenda he has about foreign interference and dilution of culture.

Frailty, thy name is woman.
