Inner Anger and Hopelessness
Author: 20 years old, Afghanistan
I read on twitter some days ago that a man had killed his wife because she gave birth to a girl not a boy. This news put a very negative effect on me. I was very shocked immediately after reading such a news. I was sad and felt hopeless as a woman myself, but as some hours passed, hater started growing in my heart towards men like that. I shared the news with my friends and we all just talked with each other about it and about the gender injustice. The fact that I could not do anything to change it made me worse. Helplessness was annoying me in the beginning, thus, it resulted in the hatred.
