It’s a variation on asking questions to play it safe, but potentially more self-defeating. I expect children,… Continue reading WHY DO WOMEN ASK FOR PERMISSION AND APOLOGIZE EVEN WHEN NOT NECESSARY?

BREAKING THE BARRIERS
This is what happened to me. I grew up in an average family in a small farm in Buuri constituency Meru County.
