Sonya Stewart, in a poem entitled She's Not Your Private Property, writes: "... you own her life just because you shared a night Big Man ...young boy ...stop killing our women."
There has been a string of murders of women in Jamaica that has triggered a national outcry.

The weekend prior, a construction workerallegedly beat his common law wife to death during a dispute over her leaving him, and dumped her body, wrapped in tarpaulin, at an apartment complex in Kingston.
See Stewart's poem in full below:
Every day another woman gets killed by their mate, sliced, chopped and hacked What is going on with these men, When did a woman’s vagina become your private property? You can cheat but she can't You can move on but she can't What the hell is that
According to you ...you own her life just because you shared a night Big Man ...young boy ...stop killing our women, she has the right to move on You can sleep with 10 other women but as soon as you think it's over you take a knife and slit her throat…seriously…what is good for the goose is for good gander …she can love another
You call that love…cheating with 10 others …she’s not your private property You don't have the right to her life just because you shared a child ...when it’s over, it’s just over ...you don't have the right to her life Big man ...young boy ...stop killing our women, she has the right to move on
