Special Report: International Widows Day – Changing the Narrative of Women’s Identity and Economic Freedom
Did you know there are an estimated 258 million widows around the world, and nearly one in ten live in extreme poverty.
While many cultures force women to become tagged and identify with widowhood as a state of mind, at LightRay Media, we are deliberately choosing to retell and change this narrative in this report by giving the insights and background that has led many women to mistakenly assume widowhood as an identity, which it is not.
A widower, a man, is not seen to be identified with that tag. Men understand that it is simply a phase, an incident that does not have the power to hold them down. Women who lost their partners are encouraged to tap into their inner worthiness and confidence to rise above the incident and not become the incident.
