We all know the saying Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Today in South Africa we pay homage to woman all around the world but especially our woman in South African history who stood united against the pass laws of the Apartheid government in 1956.
I am not one to look back but in order to move forward we need to learn from our past so as to not make the same mistakes…but this was definitely no mistake this was inspirational, every woman in South Africa should realise there is power in numbers and when united they are powerful beyond measure.
Song of Solomon 4:1 Behold, you
are beautiful, my love, behold, you are beautiful! Your eyes are
doves behind your veil. Your hair is like a flock of goats leaping down the slopes of Gilead.
Just as powerful as you are, you are beautiful too and should be respected, no woman should be subjected to the abuse both physical or mental by anyone (men, children or another woman). You were created as a “helper” to man but with your own desires, vision and dreams without you we are lost.
Genesis 2:18, 22-24 Then the LORD God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” … And the rib that the LORD God had taken from the man he made into a woman
and brought her to the man. Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” Therefore a
man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
So what we have learned from the happenings in 1956 is..
When you strike the women,
you strike a rock,
you will be crushed [you will die]!
Harsh words in a harsh world, empowering woman but also teaching men respect in order for history not to repeat itself.
