I have been reflecting on the circumstances of the women we have been meeting during the Malawi workshops, on how they live and how they cope with the changes in their lives in the context of HIV and AIDS. The more women we meet the more I see the vulnerability, fluidity and discontinuity of their lives but also how the traditional assigned roles gives them the tools and the courage to reconstruct their lives especially after divorce or when their husbands die. Almost every woman who attends the workshops talks about the disruption of her life by HIV and AIDS but they also share stories of rebellion (crossing the line) and coming to terms with defying the cultural norms.

Hey good people I'm in the moon, screaming happy and sobbing because of joy that the has come for change. To you ladies I'm telling you change will come for us women to enjoy and exercise our rights in the way we were suppose to as human beings and more over as the special creatures we are.

I miss you all,

with love Londiwe
