CE QUE LE MONDE NE SAIT PAS

Le monde ne sait pas conserver la matrice.La femme est la matrice de l'humanité.Elle participe activement à la reproduction du genre humain et la conservation de la vie.Elle est au centre de l'économie rurale,et de la vitalité dans la famille .
Mais en réponse à toutes ses responsabilités qu'elle accepte sans se lasser,le monde veut la Dominer,l'exploiter et l’aliéner par les enseignements bibliques et par la coutume.Notre action est d'aller dire à la femme rurale qu' elle est belle,utile et nécessaire dans la communauté.Il suffit qu'elle connaisse ses droits et devoirs.

WHAT THE WORLD DOES NOT KNOW

The world does not know how to preserve the mother. The woman is the mother of humanity. She actively participates in the reproduction of the human race and the preservation of life. She is at the center of rural economy and that of the family vigor.
But in response to all her responsibilities which she shoulders tirelessly, the world wants to dominate, exploit and sideline her, using Biblical teachings and tradition. Our duty is to go and tell the rural woman that she is beautiful, useful and needed in the community. She just needs to know her rights and her obligations.

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.

Thanks Brigitte

Hi Brigitte,

Thank you for writing and for sharing your perspective with WorldPulse. You are right, women are so important and yet they are under-appreciated. How do you suggest we convince women that they are powerful? I loved your writing, but feel it could be even better if you added in more detail, such as examples from your personal experience.

Best,
Mila

Very true...

Dear Brigitte,
Right. Women are so important part of this society and this world. Rightly said :
"Give me an educated mother, I shall promise you the birth of a civilized, educated nation" ~ Napoleon Bonaparte
Unfortunately the world does not miss any opportunity to exploit her, to disrespect her. But as charity begins at home, we need to educate ourselves, not only vocational educations and degrees but we need to teach our women that they are important, they need to know their rights and obligations as you mention. I think one of the best way to make them aware of some role models. They can see the direct example and get inspired. WorldPulse is a great platform for us to get inspired by many examples around us. But we need to reach out to all those women and convey these messages...Hope we do step by step, little by little and promote the message and empower them in every possible way.
luv and peace
