Being a Woman

Joanitahby Joan NankingaIn partnership with WIL Uganda

Being a woman!! Being a woman!! Is all about suffering, Being treated as a slave, Going to the garden daily, Doing all domestic work. Being a woman!! Being a woman!! Is all about suffering, Being denied her rights, Forced to have sex without consent, Forced in marriage without her acceptance, Ever undermined by the opposite sex.

Being a woman!! Being a woman!! Is all about suffering, Ever mistreated, Often beaten by husbands, Suffering with pregnancy for nine months, Labour pain is her burden, Oh! Being a woman!! Is full of misery.
