Just this month, a friend told me about a rape incident that happened to one of our fellow in the place. It happened to a young teenage housekeeper who was raped by 3 strangers which unfortunately, up until now the identity were still unclear. This young girl is a housekeeper to one of the new resident in our barangay. One time, she was asked by the owner of the house to buy something at the market. She more or less aged 15-17 years old, if im not mistaken. She left the house at about 6 pm in the evening for that errand. Unfortunately, she havent came back until the next day which the owner were a little bit worried though she was entertaining some thoughts that maybe she just went home to her mother's place. Apparently, as narrated by this young girl. She took a ride to this pedicab and with her are three men who was at first friendly to her. Then she just noticed the driver was taking her to the wrong direction which she ends up at the Accasia tree, a place where house distance is so far away. There, she was being raped countless times by these 3 men. Her mouth was being tapped while the two men hold both her arms. She was also being hurt by her raptors until she bled. I really felt so mad about how those evil men take advantage of this young girl. She was so helpless and left her naked after they took her virginity. After the incident, she was immedietly rushed to the hospital because of constant bleeding that she was experiencing and was confined for so many days. The sad thing, until this very day I dont have any idea of the development of the case or if the police force in town is damn interested in finding her perpetrators because of the girls economical status.
I am speaking and sharing in behalf of other girls and women too whom men thought are inferior in this society. I hate the social stigma that men can just imply force to the opposite gender because of the thought that they are twice as strong as women. I hate that the society and the government in particular has no concrete bill or law to protect the rights of the women and children, and if there is, why arent we properly protected?
