The last hours of the beloved actor

Some may even die because of profuse bleeding. Female circumcision is particularly rampant in eastern Ethiopia and the time chosen for this practice is just before marriage.

Women in most parts of Ethiopia are subjected to arranged marriage. Either the parents choose the bride or the groom will marry the girl of his choice, regardless of her desire. A girl is not allowed to choose her husband. It is difficult for her to leave her husband after marriage and she normally absconds and goes to the nearby town. If she is considered to be attractive, the pimps will pave the way for her to engage in prostitution. Otherwise, she will spend the rest of her life in a state of labor exploitation.
Aksumite churches adopted the basilica plan (with a long central aisle, sometimes with a shorter wing crossing it, forming the shape of a cross). These churches were constructed using well-established local building techniques and their style reflects local traditions. Although very little art survives from the Aksumite period, recent radiocarbon analyses of two illuminated Ethiopic manuscripts known as the Garima Gospels suggest that these were produced respectively between the 4th-6th and 5th-7th centuries. Aksumite coins (below) can also be looked at to gain insight into artistic conventions of the period.
Women’s life in Ethiopia, especially in rural areas, is appalling. Girls who got lucky to attend school have a wider risk of being raped, abducted and married off without their desire. Moreover, most of the schools in Ethiopia don’t have clean toilets for girls and this put them in a state of humiliation especially during their menstrual period. They prefer to stay at home than go to school during their menstruation and as a result, female students will score poor academic result.
