Have you ever seen how single women are treated in society at large, even in church!
For some reason single women are not given any respect as human beings, worse if they are single because of divorce. Unfortunately, the widows are not spared of this dehumanizing treatment from society. Young married women speak to senior women who are single any way they feel like it, even tell at them even if they are grandmothers. Does being single mean you are not deserving of any respect?
Women of this era do not accord other women respect due to seniority in age but rather marital status. How then do we expect the younger generation to be respectful of elders when they hear the same elders being disrespected in public?
I still stand to be corrected, these opinions expressed are solely based on my personal experiences.
