Nous avons assisté à une situation qui s'est passé lac là que les pécheurs accoste le matin quand ils veulent vendre leur poissons, leurs fraitins. il s'agissait d'une maman commerçante de poissons qui voulait acheter pour revendre,tellement qu'il avait beaucoup de commerçantes et moins de pécheurs,ces femmes commerçantes se sont vite precipites dans le lac et d'un coup une femme est tombé brusquement dans le lac heureusement qu'il y avait des sous-marais qui se sont vite plonge dans et ont intervenu ,or si cette dernière avait d'autre occupation ce cas ne devrait lui arriver , c'est alors le problème de son qui la laisse tous les charge s dela maison.

VIOLENCE ON WOMEN'S RIGHTS

We have seen a situation that happened when the fishermen arrive at the lake docks in the morning when they want to sell their fish. There was a mother who wanted the fish to resell it in her shop, since she had so many things to sell but not many fishermen, her trades dropped very quickly. That day suddenly the women precipitate in the lake and suddenly but fortunately there were sub-marshes who quickly immersed in and intervened. If she have had another occupation that case wouldn’t have happened, and this is a problem that leaves a big load on the house.

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.

I would like to hear more.

I am having a little bit of a hard time understanding what you are saying. Some things do get lost in translation. I would love to hear more to get a better understanding. Thank you so much for sharing.

work for women

Please correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that the story is about a woman who wanted to sell Fish but the fisherman didn't want to sell to her. She fell into the lake and nearly drowned but was saved. Is this correct?

I think that in many countries women are forced to work in a variety of jobs that they do not want to do. Woman are resilient and undergo a lot of hardships in the name of providing and protecting their families. The woman in this story is strong and brave and I commend her for that.

We need to think about creating more opportunities for women so that they can learn skills so they don't have to do these kind of jobs.

Best Wishes

I understand

Thank you Charlene. I see now that this woman was willing to do whatever it took to support herself/family. I'm sure that she would like the opportunity to pursue something of her interest and have a trade of her own. She sounds like a very strong woman and I wish her the very best. Thank you very much for sharing.
