English translation by PulseWire member Aurore

Violence against women and girls is a violation of human rights. Violence may take different forms : physical, sexual, psychological or economic. It does not know any limit linked to age, race, culture, wealth or place. In Uvira, an old woman, her daughter and two little girls (aged 7 and 3) were raped in the same house. I would like that women and girls are better protected against sexist violence and in particular rape and other forms of sexual services.

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.

Awareness

Dear Mweze,

you are absolutely right. Violence against women is a violation of human rights. I think that women needs to get together so that their voices can be heard. They can for example create centres for everyone that is a victim of any form of violence and they can function as education and awareness centre.

Women are important as well as men.

In solidarity,

Mariavittoria

Thanks!

Thanks for your message. We definitely need to create awareness among everyone including men. Laws should be more enforced in such a way that it works and reduce these rates.

Women are not inferior to men, We all should remember it!
