On Wednesday, May 6,2009 my school gave me the opportunity to see the play Ruined by Lynn Nottage. ( ) In this play we are able to see women during war time, and the effects of rape in African towns. Women are devalued and unneeded when raped. In many cases women are "ruined" meaning they are given women circumcision in a brutal way by shoving knives up their private parts and leaving them scarred forever. I was deeply moved by this play. So moved in fact that I decided to side track a little from my blog to write about it.
Although two different extremes, in both cases the victims are ruined. These raped women and this these unsupported kids. Both left to dry either to join brothels or getting hook on drugs.
In other words there are more things we need to do in order to change this world.
