In the first place, let me thank you for the Every Woman section in Nation on Sunday.
I am a man, not a woman, but because I am married (I have lived with my wife for over 15 months now) and because I was born of a woman, I feel women issues are my issues.
Each Sunday, I read your EdÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s note and all the articles in your pull-out. It is one of the most interesting and educating sections in your papers.
You may wonder why I have taken all the trouble to write. Well, my wife makes me more passionate about reading up on womenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s issues. She is so caring and loving and such a great woman. I am learning from older women that you feature in your pull-out on how to make my woman an even greater person, a woman who lives to help others.
Just to share one instance with the newly-weds out there; I allowed her to go for further studies three months after our wedding day. Currently, she is doing very well in her studies!
Women are a big part of the development process, therefore, we need to encourage and support them. Let them be educated.
You need all the support from the bwanas and anyone else to keep this section going. You may also wish to consider putting some important articles in Chichewa to benefit more women out there!
Every woman, this is my encouragement to you all: you are capable! You can do everything on the earth that we members of the opposite sex can do! Put in your effort so that we should move forward. We depend on you, though we do not seem to say that a lot!
Thank you so very much for your email. It is very refreshing to come across someone who is so deeply immersed in womenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s issues and also pleasing to note that we have fans of all ages and sexes. Please keep reading Every Woman and keep the feedback coming for we would be nowhere without our fans. As for the Chichewa bit, I am sure my bosses have seen this; so watch this space for feedback on that!
