EMAGAZINE: Rewriting Congo's Story

Photo Credit: Endre Vestvik

The Democratic Republic of the Congo has become known as the “worst place in the world to be a woman.” But for the women of the DRC, this is far from the last word. From a courageous citizen journalist in Goma to a bustling women’s Internet cafe in Bukavu, women across the country are writing an alternative story. Today the DRC is one of the most active regions in World Pulse’s global network, as women log on and use our online platform as an advocacy tool.

By giving voice to the Congo’s present struggles, these women are changing the future.They are calling for peace, women’s rights, and the protection of the war-ravaged environment. They are bearing witness to the country’s hidden beauty and vast potential for peace and prosperity. As violence has escalated in recent months, their hopeful voices are more urgent than ever. And they need us to listen.

je crois que la RDC ne sera plus comme avant du moment ou les femmes prennent conscience du fait qu elles peuvent changer les chosent en publiant des articles qui montre au reste du monde qu Congo il y aussi des choses positives.Elles désirent vivement contribuer avec leurs idées a la bonne marche de la vie politique,sociale et publique de notre société .j aimerais quand même donner quelques exemples de maman qui impactent ici chez nous a Bukavu et c est merveilleux.
