Have you ever heard or read about two great American Women called HARRIET TUBMAN and ROSA PARKS? Let me school you a bit today…
The few women in parliament are a disgrace already. The bill should fall like the Walls of Jericho in the days of Joshua and the Trumpets!
In the thick of the American Civil war and Slave Trade, HARRIET TUBMAN was captured and taken to the Southern parts of the USA.Seeing how the slaves, more so blacks were being treated, she launched a personal dangerous rescue mission. She used the underground Rail tunnel to rescue hundreds of young girls from the jaws of the traders to safe havens and finally escaped to build a home for them. For this, Harriet Tubman portrait is to be printed on the American dollars starting next year. Her huge portrait stands in the White House… Did she need the Congress to do this? NO! did she need the American Senate? NO!
On 1st December 1955, when blacks were not allowed to sit on the same chairs with the whites in the bus, Rosa Parks did the extraordinary. All the seats on the FORD Montgomery bus in Alabama had been filled… At a stop over, a white lady entered and Rosa was ordered to stand in her favour… It was a law in Alabama that if seats were filled, whenever a white entered the bus, black people were to stand and pave way.Rosa Parks refused to stand. She was arrested, taken to custody and to the courts and she battled the whites, created the Emancipation Movement that was later taken over by Martin Luther King Jnr. As a result of her efforts, black women were later allowed to vote and JF KENNEDY later came and declared all Americans regardless of colour and gender to be equal. Did she need the Congress? Did she need a seat in the Capitol?NO!
WOMEN should loathe free things! Great things achieved by women have been done by those who dared to stand up for the right against untold opposition. The few women in parliament are a disgrace already. The bill should fall like the Walls of Jericho in the days of Joshua and the Trumpets!
