Data Fact: 1 out 2 married women have been either emotionally, sexually or physically abused by their past or current husbands. Source : Tanzania Demographic Health Survey (TDHS) Pictorial relevance: According to the picture, there are 2 silhouette women at both ends, at the left hand side , the woman has a red tear representing emotional pain, a red hand covering her mouth representing sexual pain as the mouth is an intimate area and red barbered wire around her body representing physical pain while the other on the right hand side is free from the pain ,and the background has 1 red ring representing the red (pain/danger) of the woman in pain and 1 yellow ring representing the liberty out of pain according to the ratio represented. It is a disaster for half the society composed of abused married women, within their own homes, and as the family is the smallest unit of the nation, this will bring negative effects especially to the children observing. Men should be addressed about this issues so as to treat their wives with love and respect, together with the women who should be taught on how important their rights are, the ratio is very concerning and thus we need to reduce it.
