Sad bride

Sad bride, painting
This is my painting of a bride who is sad be cause she had to marry a man she doesn't love. She is looking back at the love she had to leave behind and crying. Unfortunately many women were forced into marriage in the past and even now there are places in this world where women cannot live their lives the way they want to. There were long periods of time when women had no right to decide about their own life and no freedom to choose. They were sold and used like objects or animals, used for procreation and raped by the men they were forced to live their lives with. Some of these brides committed suicide while others lived a life of misery and sadness. I start being sad to when I thing how sad it was the life of a woman in the past.
