'China renamed Rosa – From childhood sold five times'

The life of China, called by at least three names and sold five times, illustrates how impossible it was for a slave to hold onto even the most basic unit of identity. China of Singaracolla was sold into slavery as a child.
Six years later, ‘China, renamed Rosa’ was sold for 18 pagados, to a VOC sailor, Hendrik Hillman. A month after this, now recorded as ‘Rosa’, she was sold at a 100 percent profit to a Dutch ship’s captain, Cornelius Bosch.
He set sail five months later on the Bovenkerker Polder bound for Cape Town and took her with him.
The final record of sale was in 1775, when China was 16 or 17; she was bought by the most senior clergyman of the Cape, Johannes Serrurier.

So.
I cannot sleep. And I didn't know why. Now I do.
It is because of these images of journalists sticking their mics in front of a victim battered DAYS AGO, who is still under 6weeks of a Ceaserean section. She needs a hospital, not a presser.
Her attacker appears unchallenged.
In the first place, as journalists, we owe it to this society, that even when the law fails, even when a governor and his wife endorse domestic violence by seeking reconciliation rather than medical and legal assessment - we owe it to victims to prioritise THEM, not their pain.
I'm disturbed that these images suggest:
No journalist reminded everybody that we are in the middle of #OrangeTheWorld globally. No journalist felt the need to reconsider this public, group-interviewing of a woman with scars still bright red on her face.
Clickbait kills empathy.

@BitiTendai is supposedly a national leader as VP of MDCA, a Christian and lawyer but the way he behaved is NOT acceptable.
He shouted at me, called me “stupid very stupid” several time’s and made me feel intimidated, belittled and publicly humiliated.
@BitiTendai violated my rights as a woman. He violently pointed his fingers at my face and threatened me. To put this into context neither me nor my company had any prior dealings with this man, we have never spoken to him and yet his behavior was irrational, hysterical...

1/ These numbers don’t lie; social media platforms are responsible for perpetuating online harm against women. If we’re to address violence against women in 2020, we have to address the violence they face online. #thread #OrangeTheWorld #16Days
2/ According to @wagggsworld and @webfoundation, a shocking half of all young women and girls globally surveyed have experienced online abuse. #OrangeTheWorld #16Days

2. Let’s flip the narrative that places blame on victims and use the power of language in service of survivors, not perpetrators.

This year, for the #16DaysOfActivism, we are sharing about different (& original) ways to do activism against #GBV every day!

Today, let's talk about a traditional way for women to fight for their rights and ideals, but with a spin! 👇 #orangetheworld Image
Lysistrata, an anti-war comedy by the Greek playwright Aristophanes, talks about a sex strike 💪

The women in the play, led by Lysistrata, want the Peloponnesian War to end, so they stop having sex with their husbands as a strategy to secure the peace. Image
And nowadays?

Let's talk about three different sex strikes!

1⃣ Huelga de piernas cruzadas ("The strike of crossed legs"), Pereira (Colombia), September 2006 ▶️ A strike to curb gang violence. Image

Weltweit war auch schon vor der Corona-Pandemie jede dritte Frau* von Gewalt betroffen & noch immer wird in Deutschland jeden dritten Tag eine Frau* zum Opfer eines Femizids. Aktuell sind es vor allem steigende Fälle häuslicher Gewalt, die alarmieren. 1/4 #TagGegenGewaltAnFrauen
Frauenhass und #Sexismus sind Bestandteile von #Antifeminismus. In erschreckenden Ausmaßen berichten vor allem feministische Politiker*innen und Netzfeminist*innen von Gewalt, Vergewaltigungen oder Androhung sexualisierter Morde. #OrangeTheWorld 2/4
Auch die systematische Gewalt gegen Frauen* im Sinne einer sich verschärfenden #Gechlechterungerechtigkeit hat sich in Zeiten der Corona-Pandemie verstärkt gezeigt, ebenso wie Hetze und Diffamierungen im Netz. 3/4

Guess who forgot to hit publish on last week's #SundayRead? Let me make it up to you with a longer selection of pieces I've read recently. Keep reading if you're interested in Africa, #Feminism and, well, reading on Sundays.
A woman's place is in the revolution, exhibit A. The new Sudanese PM has repealed an incredibly discriminatory 'public order' law. I'm so in awe of the women of the #SudanUprising, especially how they keep saying 'thanks but this is only the beginning'.✊🏾

A woman's place is in the revolution, exhibit B. In the #LebanonProtests, 'the women's front line' serves to protect the peace and to lead the change.

Sexual harassment at workplace
Sexual harassment is any unwanted behavior of a sexual nature which makes you feel offended, uncomfortable, intimidated or humiliated.

#OrangeTheWorld
#GenerationEquality
#16DaysOfActivism
Quid pro quo
This is when your submission to a sexual act or sexual advances is seen as a condition for either getting a job, a promotion, or any other benefit in your job which you would normally have been entitled to, and should be based on merit.
#orangetheworld
Offensive working environment
This is when you receive unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature in a working environment.

Lina Abdulwahid is a leading female member of Syrian Future Party.

Her colleague Hevrin Khalef was beaten and executed by Turkish-backed gunmen on 12 October: on 17 November, gunmen burst into Lina's home, beat her, shot her twice & left her for dead.

#16Days #orangetheworld
A leading female politician on the legislative council of newly-liberated Deir-ez-Zor, Ms. Abdulwahid was a prime target.

Speaking with difficulty, she described being gunned down: "I was alone with my 7-year-old daughter. She was scared and ran away, I don't know where she is."
ISIS have claimed 20+ assassinations in Deir-ez-Zor since the Turkish invasion as part of a campaign targeting those working with the Autonomous Administration, with at least 10 victims ID'd by name.

Ms Abdulwahid is now in Damascus for treatment: video provided to @RojavaIC.

As you know I get over a 100 calls daily on security matters involving threat to life across the country. But 2 of 5 of most calls border on Gender Based Violence. This one shocked me in the heart of Garki in Lokogoma. @CanHCNigeria #HearMeToo #16DaysOfActivism #OrangeTheWorld
Juliet (18) and her elder Sister Jane (21) were born into a family of 5, where the boy child is raised as king. They have 3 elder brothers who were raised chaotically according to her scary illustration. Now that their parents are weak- they’re all facing the consequences of this
The temper tantrums were nothing much to worry about as kids she quipped. But now that the boys are grown & out of school without much to do, they have become homegrown terror for all. Abuse of substances didn’t help their case and violent behavior became a culture. #HearMeToo
