It also reflects women’s collective decision making power and empowerment in the community as they use to pass major decisions affecting the community by putting sanction against someone who has bitten his wife or who attacked other women illegally or who violates certain community norms. It is also used for blessing someone when they come together for Ateetee. There is a firm respect for women during Ateetee in Ethiopia, especially in Oromo community to the extent that when women singing Ateetee go to war front and intervene in the war to make peace that war should stop immediately and start peaceful reconciliation due to the respect and power of Ateetee women to make peace.
