Women under attack in Karonga over ‘provocative clothes’

Civil rights groups are up in arms against some people who are attacking women and girls in Karonga for wearing miniskirts among others.

Women under attack over dressing

Reports say some traditional leaders in the district are behind the attacks as they say such dressing promotes promiscuity, defilement and early pregnancies among girls.

The women are harassed and in some instances undressed.

The Coalition for the Empowerment of Women and Girls (Cewag) executive director Beatrice Mateyu has since asked the police to arrest those harassing the women.

“The women rights are being infringed. The Constitution gives the women the right to dressing the way they want,” she said.

She said there was need for the men in Karonga to be sensitized on rights issues.

Please just lock them up, they are worse than their cats and dogs. If they can hold their faeces until they reach the toilet or the bush, like wise they can control their sexual urges. Women did not ask them to twist thier minds with alcohol and pornography… sick heads!!

The problem is not the way women dress, but the inability of some men to control themselves. It is a contradiction to show ones objection to the way women dress by using it as an excuse to undress them. Men are the problem, not the women.

inability of women to dress proper enables men to control proper. I can see a problem causing a problem.

“Dressed the way they want,” I don’t agree to that. What if us men we walk naked, will you not arrest us?

We are the image if God. If one of God’s attribute is nakedness, these women are right.
