LA GUERRE EN RDC

Les femmes sont les plus durement affectées par les guerres, or elles ne jouent pas un grand rôle dans la construction de la paix. La femme n'est pas impliquée activement dans la résolution des conflits et l'édification d'une paix durable.

L’éducation : la fille dans le taux de scolarisation se resserre en faveur des filles qui accèdent de plus en plus à l'instruction. Un renforcement de l'éducation et de la formation des femmes dans tous les domaines est nécessaire pour accroitre leurs chances d'égalité dans la promotion sociale, économique et politique.

English translation by PulseWire member MsCadet

Women are the ones hit the hardest by wars, however they do not play a huge role in peace building. The woman is not actively involved in conflict resolution and the building of sustainable peace.

In education, the enrollment rate of girls is increasing as more and more girls have access to education. The support of education and the training of women in all spheres is necessary to increase women's chances for social, economic, and political advancement.

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.

Education pour toutes les femmes

Mweze,

J'essayerai t'ecrire en francais. Je suis d'accord avec ton opinion et je conssidere aussi que l'education est un des plus efficace moyen pour developer le potential des femmes. Les femmes sont un vrai force et notre communites ont besoin de leurs force et leur intelligence pour batir un monde sans violence. On peut pas oblier que les femmes du monde entire sont victime de la violence soit-il un guerre, un conflict regional ou un conflit religieu ou seulement etre part d'une famille violente.

Je voudrais te remmercier pour ton commentair et je voudrais aussi te demander plousieur information sur toi et sur ton education et ta experience dans un conflict.

merci

Irina

Thank you!

Dear Mweze,

Thank you for your testimony! You are so right, I believe, that education and training are the key to the empowerment of women in all arenas. I am glad to hear that the enrollment rate of girls in school is increasing, and hopefully in your community.

Woman are the natural healers of the world and so should have primary roles in peace-building. One of our World Pulse Voices of Our Future Correspondents is intending to play a significant part in guiding the devastated peoples of Syria toward reconciliation.

As a clear and caring voice, you, too, have already made a difference for your people. Please keep going!

With Respect,

Interfaith Reverend Sarah

Dear Mweze, I agree that

Dear Mweze,

I agree that education is a hugely important asset in every woman's life, and it plays a special role in building confidence and skills to make independent choices and foster the next generation of nonviolent leaders!

It would be great to hear more about these thoughts. What is the current probability of a woman or girl receiving an education in DRC and how does that relate to your observation about women not playing a part in the peace-building efforts? What other current obstacles do women face in obtaining political power? If a woman were contributing to building a plan of sustainable peace, what would that look like and why does it matter?

Thank you for sharing your ideas!

Best wishes,
Katie, Oregon, U.S.A.
