LES FEMMES CONGOLAISE RECLAME LE RESPECT DE LA PARITE

Par notre démarche, nous voulons pousser le législateur congolais a être dans sa logique a respecter lui même la parité, votes antérieurement. S’appuyant sur l'article 14 de la constitution qui stiple que la femme adroit a une représentation équitable au sein des institutions national, provinciales et locales.

By our initiative, we want to push the Congolese legislator to respect parity within the government, for which he has voted for already. Supported by article 14 of the constitution that stipulates that women have the right of an equal representation at the breast of national institutions, both provincial and local.

This story was written for World Pulse’s Ending Violence Against Women Digital Action Campaign.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring an end to gender-based violence. The EVAW Campaign elicits powerful content from women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as vocal grassroots leaders, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.

Merci Hamisi pour partager

Merci Hamisi pour partager cette histoire passionnante! Comme vous savez, l’importance d’avoir la representation d’une femme est cruciale pour l’avacement des femmes dans la communauté. À votre avis, qu’est ce que les femmes pourraient faire a ce moment pour assurer que leurs voix sont entendues? Continuer de le faire pression sur cette decision!

En solidarité,
Adele

Thank You

Dear Hamisi,

Thank you for your testimony regarding this crucial issue; the equality of women as it relates to equal representation in your country.

If the spirit moves you to write more, such as results of your efforts in the future, please do!

Your voice is important and will be heard on World Pulse.

Best Regards,

Interfaith Reverend Sarah

COntinue with the advocacy

Dear Hamisi thank you for the good work. What you should always remember is that legislators can make laws but implementing these laws is another ball game altogether. So i strongly advise you to continue advocating for these laws and rights as enshrined in your constitution to be put in place so that women today can enjoy these rights. We are here for you. Stay blessed.

Dear Hamisi, I was glad to

Dear Hamisi,
I was glad to read your post. We often think of government as part of the solution to critical issues (health, equity, joblessness, domestic violence) and we often forget that in some parts of the world, government is still, in fact, part of the problem.

Representation -- of women and minorities -- is crucial if we are to make strides toward equality, so if you have some time, I'd love to hear more about the legislative and advocacy work you're involved with and how things are going in that area in the DRC.

In friendship,

Violeta
