English translation by PulseWire member ngalula

Women here are traumatised. They wake up in the morning and go to the camp from 8am until 4pm, they carry a basket on their back and the baby on their shoulders. They arrive at home and start looking for the wood, and the vegetables. Even their husbands are traumatising them by slapping and hurting them and giving unreasonable commands such as: feed the children, wash the children. This goes on until the husbands go to rest because they're tired. Next day is the same thing.

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.

Hello

First, thank you for your courage to share these topics. I am interested to learn more.

Based on your description, women in your community have many responsibilities. What do you think women can do to escape the patterns you mention?

Equality

Thank you for sharing your story of a woman's life in your country. The demands of day-to-day living sound difficult on their own, yet are made worse by abusive men who have no respect for women or children. I am always amazed at what women will do to ensure that their families are taken care of!

My hope is that men everywhere will stop abusing and that men and women will share in the responsibilities of day to day living and raising a family. The World Pulse community is worldwide and certainly they are success stories from your country. Keep writing and speaking your truth!

Aloha,
Beverly
