Introducing myself and my journal

About Me:
I am a young woman . And i have just completed my first degree in education July 2010.
My specialization was in KISWAHILI and political science.
I truly like to work towards reducing gender discrimination in my country and through my effort i hope i will succeed.

Title- FEMALE GENITLE MUTILATION (FGM) IN AFRICAN COUNTRIES CASE STUDY IN TANZANIA
Most of women in Africa are been circumcised just because of their traditions and customs. Most of African countries practices this in order to guide their customs, so due to those acts women faces many effects especially young girls who are mostly affected because they are the one who are been focused more.

During their young childhood in puberty period around 12-16 years girl children are circumcised .Most of the areas the act is done locally by local doctors, in Tanzania the FGM is practiced in areas like Manyara ,Musoma Dodoma and some areas in Kilimanjaro. Although the government of Tanzania has done many effort to make sure people stop practicing those bad customs by publicizing effects of FGM example it may cause dearth due to lost of blood, spread of diseases such as HIV AIDS due to the use of unsafe tools but still they continue to practice it. They said if they stop doing so they will deny their traditions and customs.

As women we have to say no because we are the one who are been affected and if we stand by our own legs, i am sure we are going to stop all those things which the government failed to stop. Together as women we can.

My Passions:
T O FIGHT AGAINST GENDER DISCRIMINATION

My Challenges:
TO CHANGE ALL THOSE THINGS WHICH I DONT LIKE

My Vision for the Future:
TO BE A GOOD ACTIVIST AND FERMINIST TO HELP WOMEN

women violence

We have to work hard towards reducing women violence especially in African countries because one month ago women in Congo was raped by war criminals and i hope if we fight this things of discriminating us will totally disappear.And in our country(Tanzania) most of women have been reported they are becoming mentally disturbed and even they become crazy due to violence done to them by their husbands.WE HAVE THE POWER TO SPEAK OUT AGAINST THIS VIOLENCE
