Author(s): Justine John Dyikuk and Peter E Egielewa
Abstract: While women are bearing the brunt of various kinds of inhuman treatment around the world, the voices of many feminists are increasingly calling the attention of all to the indefectible role of women in society. Moved by this narrative, the researcher embarked on a qualitative study titled, “Catholic Women as Communicators of ‘Living Water’ to a world thirsty for peace: Perspectives from Nigeria” to determine the place of women as communicators of peace to a troubled-world. Through historical narrative, the study discovered that in both local and global contexts, women and their children suffer verbal, sexual, physical and psychological abuse mostly by men which limits their potential in society. As possible panacea, the researcher suggested strategic communication skills such as initiating prayer at home, raising godly kids, pacifying their family members and learning from women peace-makers and activists. The paper concluded that if the desired peace is to be achieved, Catholic women in Nigeria ought to take the lead by carrying the “Living Water” to a world thirsty for peace.
