Women Urged To Leave Abusive Marriages And Relationships

The Founder of Makers Network Foundation, Ms Eunice Yeboah Ntiwaa has admonished women to leave abusive marriages and relationships to prevent them from death.

Ms Eunice Yebaoh Ntiwaa has noted that it is time for women who are in abusive marriages and relationships to make bold decisions to leave such relationships.

She made the call at a day’s sensitisation workshop for women at Wamahinso community in the Asutifi North District of the Ahafo Region.

The programme was to empower the women in the community to know their basic rights and steps they should take if they are in abusive marriages and relationships.

Ms Yeboah called for more education for women especially those in rural areas to know their rights especially when it comes to domestic violence.

“The people are so traditional and we know traditions of Ghana is, women to some extent are limited with regards to their rights. So decided to educate the women on their rights with regards to domestic violence. Women in areas like this do not know much about their rights. If you are in an abusive marriage you need to report the case to the very immediate superior you believe could solve the problem. You do not have to stay in an abusive marriage and die. The is the chief, there are pastors in the community, there are leaders, there is an institution called DOVVSU which normally solve problems like this. Leave to live, do not live-in abusive marriage to die.”

The Krontihemaa of Wamahinso, Nana Yaa Owusuaa, in an interview with First News commended the organisers of the programme for educating the women in the community.

Nana Owusuaa noted that the education they have received  would go a long way to empower the women of Wamahinso to know their rights in marriages and when it comes to domestic violence.

She further added that the programme has also empowered the queen mothers in the town who would also take the advantage to continually educate the women in the area.
