Men disfiguring women is an act of ‘ownership’, I own you and if you are going to leave me, I will make sure your beauty is taken away from you. I always remember my aunty and how the man she married held her and scalded her entire body with a pressing iron.
Then he tried to use a kitchen knife to pluck out her eyes and he almost succeeded. She fought him off and ran into the kitchen which she locked, he then locked up the house and fled. Neighbours had to pry open the burglary proof to get her out.
She was in the hospital for almost 4 months with several surgeries to repair her skin. There is still a giant scar by her left eye where he stabbed while trying to pluck her eyes out. This man went unpunished until he died, her family merely returned the dowry he paid.
