Half Widows

By Chloe Shaw

The term half widow is given to a women whose husband has disappeared and are still missing... Most people say they have died or that they have been taken away to work.
Not only do the the women suffer but half orphans suffer as well. Sometimes the women can not look after their children while they are suffering from the lose of their husband. Many women and girls are left without a voice or a family. Women find it very difficult to survive without their husbands, not only do they have to look after the children and clean/cook but they also have to bring in money to feed the family... No one wants to hire the women as they think they aren't good for anything so the mothers end up selling the boys in the family to bring in the money.
