A Call for Change. By Phindu Zaie

A 14 year old girl defiled and infected with HIV.

A 15 month old baby defiled to punish her mother.

A first year student gang raped.

The stories we’ve heard. In this short time. A drop in the ocean of all the sexual violence, all the evil, all the death that is our reality.

The result of a system that has taught ownership of women’s bodies and a cold disregard for our autonomy and life. Woven into normalcy with a culture of slice and protection and making excuses for the men that do this shit. It’s tiring. It’s the same story every day.
