In the USA the incarceration of womenof African descent is rapidly increasingand the murder, rape, and other gender related violations are alarming, globally,and require immediate attention and “pro-active” intervention. In the US theconduct/behavior of young females of African descent ages 5-25, but especially between the ages of 10-18has, particularly in urban areas, becomequite noticeably disturbing. After muchobservation and evaluation, MWM andaffiliates have reached the conclusion thatIf Black/African women do not makesome serious moves and actions for “Saving Our Daughters”, we will all paythe price. Our women (sisters) must stepin and up
as onlywe can do
to provide our young girls with the proper nurturing,motherly love and sisterly affection, andthe necessary insight
and preparations for becoming a strong, confident, non-exploitable, skillful, morally sound, etc.African woman.
. There is not one group/organization/institution (until now) with the mainobjective and mission that is totallycommitted to the upliftment,empowerment, unification, etc. of womenand girls throughout the African Diasporathat is designed from a historical, cultural,and self-determined frame of reference,from the grassroots through the glassceiling inclusiveness, and from the cradleto the grave conviction of resistance for freedom and justice and of course the political stance of
“Africa for Africans.”
is time that the true spirit, beauty,greatness and essence of the” Mother of Civilization” (the Original Woman, theAfricana Woman) be brought forward,upheld and readily exemplified and alongwith that the fundamental principles of Ma’at, for it is more than obvious thatthroughout the world there is a destructiveimbalance and this must be rectifiedsooner than later.
