NOUS AVONS AUSSI NOS DROITS!

moi souvent je me demande pourquoi nous les veuves nous sommes méprisé on nous considère comme une petite personne sans valeur surtout dans les familles de nos mari peu importe le bon comportement,on nous appelle les prostitués.De ce fait,nous sommes déséquilibrées;nous nous sentons impuissantes,traumatisées,tourmentées,délaissées,abandonnées et même troublées.

English translation by PulseWire member Kristen Hecht

I often wonder why we widows are despised; why we are considered a small, worthless person; why, especially in our husbands' families (and regardless of good behavior) we are called prostitutes. As a result, we are unequal, we feel powerless, traumatized, tortured, neglected, abandoned, and even disturbed.

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.
