English translation by PulseWire member ngalula

VIOLENCE ON WOMEN

We, women living here suffer this criminal act of violence done in the presence of our husbands and children. They behave like animals, they have no shame or fear. After have done what they need they might kill, injure, for cows, goats or money. They might even take the girls by force and make them their women. These are unloved, unhappy, mistreated, they live like slaves, but they have no way of escape.

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.
