While most women in the developed countries are enjoying the liberty that time has brought up with struggles and courages of many women in the past some others in the underdeveloping nations are still struggling with violence and suppression and living even without the liberty of their own life. Out of her courage and dignity, a Kenyan woman Rebecca Lolosoli has initiated a village (named Umoja – Unity) as a shelter for women like her from domestic and social violence, suppression, and evil cultural practices like genital mutilation. In that village no men other than their own sons are allowed as long as they abide by the village rules. They have developed their village as a wonderful artisan community where they specially work on beads. However, they still are living with threat from their rivals – males in the village. This is one of the story of such women who are still fighting for their freedom putting their life at stake. This is a call for us (women) to feel their pain and hold their hands for support.
