Come on men, protect women

THE EDITOR: “Murder nightmare” was the newspaper headline as a young girl’s throat was slit in the vicinity of MovieTown, Port of Spain. Should this even be happening? Wake up, men of Trinidad, don’t you see that our mothers, sisters and wives are being targeted?

There have been an increasing number of rapes and murders involving women. Women are no longer safe in Trinidad. There are reports of women being attacked by men in their hotel rooms, cars and even on the street.

Women should start defending themselves against predators. Free self-defence classes should be available to all women in society. Schoolgirls should be taught self-defence in school by professionals such as police officers and martial arts experts.

Women should be able to possess weapons such as pepper spray in order to protect themselves from the already armed criminals.

Come on men, show the women some love and give them a sense of belonging. You should all protect the women of Trinidad whether you know them or not, after all it just might be your mother, sister, daughter or wife next.
