“When a woman tells the truth, she is creating the possibility for more truth around her” ~ Adrienne Rich
And that’s what Dr Pornthip Rojanasunan has been doing for more than 20 years in the male-dominated dog-eat-dog world. She believes, thanks to being a woman, she is still alive till today and that the spirits of the dead keep protecting her in doing her works – considering both the police and the criminals despise her.
She says she only wants justice and the public to pay attention to criminal justice system. Following her Buddhist belief, she tries to do the good and right thing and one who overcomes obstruction every day. Some sites like this one claim that she’s being paid by my state Government USD120 grand an hour to appear in Court for Adik BH Teoh’s Inquest. I am not sure if that claim holds water but it is better to pay such price for justice than to hire a personal jet to Sarawak for con-sulting jobs (wops).
“If non-violence is the law of our being, the future is with women” ~ Gandhi
Boy, how I wish we had more women like Dr Pornthip Rojanasunan, who are strong enough to call a spade a spade, because “a strong woman is a woman determined to do something others are not determined not be done” (Marge Piercy).
In today’s world, frankly, women are ‘groomed’ to be weak, meek and ‘gedik’ – depending on the situation being thrown at them by men and their children – and that is tremendously degrading. How could we stoop too low to please some people, with complete disregards to the idea of being a woman in the first place?
I always believe what makes a woman is her natural ability to make a man better in every single way because God Almighty has bestowed upon women the highest reward of being a human being – for simply being a mother, who in turn would send away a good son out to be a good man and leader.
So, you must be wondering why on earth I am writing like this. I am just tired to see us women given a ‘trophy role with no authority’ to change. I am mad to hear women being labelled negatively – so we could don LV’s, Jimmy Choo’s, Gucci’s and Tiffany’s? Gee, that’s a tad too shallow, ladies!
So, a woman’s got to do what a woman’s got to do. Let’s make things right again. If we are being poorly treated and lowly accepted by men, we only have ourselves to blame. So, are you ready to shake this world up ladies?
“Love and respect woman. Look to her not only for comfort, but for strength and inspiration and the doubling of your intellectual and moral powers. Blot out from your mind any idea of superiority; you have none” ~ Giuseppe Mazzini
