Ode to women
Indeed, there are countless female celebrities — both fictitious and real — who deserve special mention on the eve of Women’s Day (F for free, F for fun, March 4). From Cleopatra to “entertainment, entertainment and entertainment” Silk, we do have all.
The omnipresent “everywoman” deserves special mention, too. All the world’s a stage and she has numerous roles to play. She can be the coy mistress and, if she chooses, Kali as well.
It is a shame that a girl-child is still seen as a curse by many in this part of the world. Rape and other crimes against them are nothing new.
Women’s Day is best celebrated when women realise they are not just “entertainment”. It is best to respect, love and admire them.
