37-year-old pop singer Anna Sedokova in your Instagram responded to the recent words of Regina Todorenko, offered to women who are subjected to domestic violence by husbands, think about the reasons behind it.
“What I heard yesterday from Regina, very bad and wrong. Nobody has the right to justify violence in the family.
My mother raised us alone. Dad left us, and I am not getting, because it was not. And my mother was a typical divorced woman with two children, a lack of money and high drama. But I was happy because my house was not beaten. As they beat their girls upstairs neighbor and another neighbor’s two daughters on the floor below. Through the walls I heard screaming and a child crying, but they continued to live. Perhaps because the worse it was for them, one being my mother. To stay without a man. To be one.
30 years later, and in our society, little has changed. We still judge the success of women in the presence of her men. I know it’s not you. But advertisers and large companies — Yes. They all need a sweet picture, cute couple wedding rings on hands; the child who plays three musical instruments.
About what we speak, if even now I every day blamed for the fact that at 21 I made a choice and walked away from her husband, abuser? Left someone who abused me. I stopped even his own mother.
And here for 15 years, poking me in the face that I’m not married and I was divorced. What they call me? I think you’re aware, read. It’s me. As it says, “rich and successful”. We (women, society, the media) should stop judging about the viability of women by whether she had a man or not. She’s married or not. If she has children at 35 or not.
Woman, like man, is a person! And not believe, to be happy without men (inferior, drinking, beating, but at least some) is also possible. I’d really like to see in advertising campaigns and on the covers of magazines as more women self-build businesses; happy single mothers without offsets “I dream one day to meet him.” I really want to see in our society, has become the norm to accept and support a woman for who she is,” wrote Sedokova.
