English translation by PulseWire member JC2986

In a neighborhood called Karhale, in the city of Bukavu, lived a man who had two wives. Every day, he would abuse his wives by publicly insulting them and calling them prostitutes, and women with no worth. One day, he grabbed a machete, looking to end the life of one of his wives because he accused her of having sexual intercourse with a mason who was building a house next door. The poor woman was saved by neighbors who begged the man not to kill her. There are also men who rape their wives. Thank you friends for reading these and understanding.

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.

Peut-etre un jour

J'espere qu'un jour, les femmes seront respectees dans votre pays et qu'elles ne devront plus avoir peur des hommes ou de leur maris.
