You  must be sure  to  carry  a calabash of fresh coconut milk    .  Her poetry is more than  a refreshment . It  is a literary beverage . The metaphor   transfigures  and cleanses us  into a  new beings  and then  summoned  into the  holy earth   of literary redemption . A revolution!   Bhoumik's  traverses  with forth and back within the spirit-land of word. The irony  is   the truth that spikes .Spikes that slash through the arteries of the wicked .As her pen  spews purified venom and undiluted vitriol  in her clarion for peace against war- makers and trouble -mongers.

WOMAWORDS SPECIAL: the March Experience-Past and Present!!!

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY SPECIAL -Angels do walk among humanity, lending a hand whenever needed. Seen and unseen, the universe takes care of it's own in the cycles of the seasons. Woman, the gentle strength who bears the race of it's species. Woman, the support system that nurtures the fledgling that rules the generations of power holders. To speak of the human race in it's most diverse form is to recognize the guardian angel that not only carries the seed of humanity but also shapes it in it's initial stages to present to it's world the heros we celebrate in high, medium and lower places. A woman is the pot that suckles tomorrow by tending today. She is the creators deputy in formenting the charge that holds to count succeeding voices of men and women. Her place is the cadre of unsung heros of her specie. How any society treats it's women tells their level of spiritual guaranty. WOMAWORDS, is a platform curated by a man who recognizes the historical, cultural, social and economical injustices that has plagued the "womanrace". From the baby girl to the teenage struggling with it's identity to the mature woman whose voice has been muted by it's male partners and societal policing, WOMAWORDS seeks to raise awareness on existing gaps that hinder the full realization and positive potential for the female in living a productive life without social stigmitazation and offer where possible, mitigating measures and where not possible provide information and tried and tested methods of achieving individual and communal self positive growth. This endeavor is hoped to open dialogue on traumatizing topics into the fore like menstrual health , speaks firmly and volubly against Feelings genital mutilation and child marriages, campaign against sexual exploitation and rape, as well as encourage women to speak against other forms of gender inequalities in their societies. WOMAWORDS, while it seeks to speak for women issues, is also geared to engage the male gender for women are mothers of men and men are sons of women. This divide must be recognized and respected to avoid the gender wars that has brought us as human society to where we are now. We dedicate this journal to legendaries and luminaries of female voices of resilience,those who have gone ahead like Maya Angelo, Toni Morrison, Yvonne Vera, Bessy Head ,Greta Thurnberg,Doris Lessing, Wangari Maathai, Brenda Fassie ,and the living, the likes of G Jamie Dede's, Tsitsi Dangarembwa, Fadzayi Mahere, Jessie Majome, Thandiswa Mazwai, Hope Masike, Martina Mwanza, Njoki Ndungu, Michelle Obama, Nyaradzayi Gumbonzwanda and Opra Winfrey:A Prologue -( by NANCY NDEKE, the WOMAWORDS African Continent  Editorial Associate).
