LES CAUSES PROFONDES DES VIOLENCES SEXUELLES EN R D CONGO

Notre pays la RD Congo est répute la capitale mondiale des viols.Chaque jour il y a une femme qui est violée surtout a l '
Est.
Dans un atelier que nous avons fait a ce sujet,les femmes ont essayé de raconter quelques les causes des violences sexuelles dont elles sont victimes.Les principales sont
1.Les coutumes est mœurs
2.Les guerres a répétition
3.Des enseignements religieux fondées sur la discrimination des femmes
4.L' impunité et la paralysie des organes judiciaires
5.L' enclavement
6.L' ignorance des femmes sur ces droits et devoirs
7.La pauvreté de la femme.
8.La non scolarisation des femmes par rapport aux hommes
9.Les intervenants dans la lutte contre les violences sexuelles sont plus théoriciens que praticiens
10.Manque de la politique de suivi des ONG qui interviennent dans la lutte contre les violences sexuelles.
Quelque soit le nombre élevé des ONG qui luttent contre ce crime, nous constatons avec regret que les cas de viols continuent d' augmenter.
Nous avons aussi des cas des violences sexuelles qui nous sont rapportés par nos points focaux des villages éloignées.
Avec la rentrée scolaire,les enseignants et les professeurs d' université taillent leurs pénis en vue de donner des points sexuellement transmissibles aux filles de leurs classes en échange des points scolaires.
Nous avons une très grande responsabilité de dénoncer ces crimes.

THE CAUSES OF SEXUAL ABUSE IN DR of CONGO
Our country the DR of Congo is presumed to be the world capital for rape.
Every day there is a woman who is raped especially in the East.
In a workshop on this topic, women tried to recount some of the causes of sexual violence to which they are victims.
The main ones are
1.the customs and beliefs
2.Repeated wars
3.Religious teachings on discrimination against women
4.The law and weaknesses of the judiciary
5.The enclosure
6.The ignorance of women on their rights and obligations
7 Poverty of the woman.
8. Illiteracy rate of the women compared to that of the men
9.The stakeholders in the fight against sexual violence are theoreticians and practitioners
10 Lack of follow-up policy monitoring the NGOs involved in the fight against sexual violence.
Despite the numerous NGOs fighting against this crime, we regrettably note that the rape cases continue to increase.
We also receive reports of sexual abuse instances, from our focal points in remote villages.
With the reopening of the school year, teachers and university professors sharpen their penis to give sexually transmitted marks to the girls of their classes in the stead school marks.
We have a very great task of reporting such crimes.

sa cause majeure c'est la guerre

Ma Bri,
Merci beaucoup pour votre intervention brillante
J’aime votre manière de présenter les faits.

J'affirme que le viol est par tout et nous avons les causes communs en Afrique.
Pour le Congo est accentué, a cause de la guerre, la raison pour laquelle nous devons condamner la guerre. Puis que la guerre vient avec les conséquences graves comme la famine, vol, viol etc

Dans la paix

Merci

Merci de partager vos connaissances. pour lutter contre ce problème, nous avons besoin de connaître la raison première. C'est interessant de connaitre les causes de la violence sexuelle. Merci.

Bonjour
Je suis bien satisfaite de vos réactions.Je souhaite que vous me connectiez aux autres lecteurs qui pourront m'aider à réfléchir comme vous.Je suis dans le processus de rédiger un petit livre qui parle des causes des vaillances sexuelles dans notre pays.Je suis fort persuadée que nous ne pouvons pas arriver à diminuer ce fléaux sans en connaitre les causes.Ce n'est qu'en suite que nous pouvons proposer des solutions.
