These women are all girl power
When my babies hadn’t even entered the world, their end was already being planned by my relatives who didn’t want girl children. They illegally obtained information about the sex of my babies while I was still pregnant and I was pressurized to have an abortion. I wasn’t going to give up without a fight.
However since the case has progressed, I have grown extremely frustrated by the system and the authorities, who promise justice and deliver none. If not for the support of my parents and my twin babies, I don’t know how I would continue on.
If any change should come about this Women’s Day, I hope for a system that’s kinder to women and not just one that says it is. I have, over the years, received support from several people on days like these and when my cause was highlighted, but I do sometimes still feel all alone. It is my dearest dream to bring around the justice I’ve been seeking for my children as soon as possible.
