Women of the revolution: female students from UPNG defy police

Women of the revolutionMICHAEL DOM

TODAY these daughters of Papua New Guinea have shown us the resilience of Papua New Guinean women to the tyranny of fear, bred by years of brutality at the hands of their men.

They are fearless to oppression.

They will pick themselves up when we beat them.

They will care for our children when we leave them.

They will put family first over their own freedoms.

They still love and pray for their men to change.

Who can resist such a power? If God is not with them, then He is not God.

Men, women, girls and boys of PNG - look and keep looking at this image until you feel that you care about what it means. Then act upon it as a human rights issue.

These are Facebook fanatics. Ordinary people go about doing their own business. Not interested in politics.

"She is the liquid night

In her starlit vision
In her saltiness
She inspires me

She is in lahara
The gifts she bares
She subdues me"
