Women’s Voices Now: I Accept I Accept I Accept

Today’s film “captures the true essence of the protagonist’s feelings getting into an arrange marriage.” It was submitted by Sanaa Iftikar in Pakistan.

What do you think, readers?

You can watch the rest of the submissions at the Women’s Voices Now website.

    It makes my skin crawl.

    This goes on all the time. Everywhere. In different ways, be it ‘arranged’ or forced. That implicit way of ‘arrangement’, where a woman/man feels cornered, if she/he said ‘no’ then what? So she/he does it anyway. “She accepted”. She/he might not have had much of a choice.

    One word: education, it’s key. Another word: courage. We need to find the courage to stand up to such ignorance by going against the status quo.

    It was good, though I think it’s interesting it’s titled I accept, I’m assuming it’s telling us that she doesn’t have much of a choice. So had to accept.

    “Low percentage”

    Where do you live? Somewhere very sheltered by the look of things.
