Opinio juris sive necessitatis (“an opinion of law or necessity”) or simply opinio juris (“an opinion of law”) is the belief that an action was carried out as a legal obligation.
Opinio juris is the subjective element of custom as a source of law, both domestic and international, as it refers to beliefs. The other element is state practice, which is more objective as it is readily discernible. To qualify as state practice, the acts must be consistent and general international practice.
“From FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) to Sati Practices
Me becomes WE because WE are a collective whole
That ‘I am’ the voice of WE
WE are the women from EVERY nation”
“If she isn’t against us she is with us”
To All Women:
Be an *Esther*, bold and courageous enough to stand for the truth, to voice your opinion and fight for the good of others, even when it means to sacrifice yourself. If HE has put you in a position, it is for a purpose. Never be afraid to heed to that inner voice.
Be a *Ruth*, loyal in all your relationships, walk the extra mile and don’t quit when things get tough. Someday, you’ll see why it was all worth the effort.
Be a *Lydia*, let your homes be open, let your hands be generous, let your hearts be big enough to help anyone in need. Joy is greatest when shared.
Be a *Hannah*, never cease to pray. It will never be in vain.
Be a *Mary*, humble and submissive. You don’t have to be great for HIM to use you, you just need to Submit.
Be a *Dorcas*, use your talents, however small it may seem to bring a smile on someone’s face. You’ll never know how much it can mean to someone.
Be an *Abigail*, remember how each decision can turn your life around for good or bad. Be wise.
Be an *Elizabeth*, never doubt what HE can do. Miracles do happen.
Be a *Mary Magdalene*, never let your mistakes and judgments of other people stop you from experiencing true joy in Jesus.
Be a *Rebekah*, never forget that true beauty lies within. Draw your Bond closer to HIM through your character.
Be a Woman of Love!!!
