THE EDITOR, Sir:
Society is evolving into a state where we have to worry about our little girls, young women and females on a whole. Things that were once unacceptable to us are becoming somewhat acceptable, as there is a breakdown in society.
The case of the eight-year-old in St James, along with four other members of her family, being raped is very devastating and needs to be addressed.
Everyone is responsible, and I call on the various different women's movements to make their voices heard so that women can be appreciated and respected more in the society.
Communities are becoming too individualistic, and residents need to go back to leaning on each other's shoulders.
By promoting good values, more women would respect their bodies. Men would show more respect, too.
We can blame the politicians, the Government, law enforcers, mothers', absence of fathers in home, or a number of other entities, but in the end, we all need to realise the part that we play in this perpetuated problem and seek to be a part of the solution.
