Merci

merci d'avoir pris la peine de lever ta voix pour donner ton point de vu en ce qui concerne les relations de genre en RDC.

c'est ainsi que les solutions durables y seront trouvées.

Ghnadi un jour a dit, tout finira bien par s'arranger, et si tout ne s'arrange pas, ce que ce n'est pas encore la fin. Femme, garde espoir!!!!

Ghandi once said it will all get well at the end, and if it doesn't get well, then it is not yet the end.

Totally agree with you

It's very true, women are victims (and survivors) of sexist violence all around the world. This is a crime that has to be punished, we deserve to be treated with respect, we have the right to live a life without violence. We are the mothers, sisters and daughters of the men who exert violence over us. This behavior is learned through observation and reinforcement in both the family and society. Men are not born violent against women, they learn to be like that. Domestic violence allows the perpetrator to gain control of the victim through fear and intimidation. It has its roots in the subordinate role women have traditionally held in private and public life in many societies. The United Nations Declaration on the Elimination of Violence Against Women describes it as “a manifestation of historically unequal power relationships between men and women". But we women can be proactive and get information about our rights in our workplace and our home, and also to join a women's group and get support. In both public places and in the home, we can offer our support and alliance to a woman we know is dealing with male violence. We have to get organized to eradicate violence against women, it's the only way!!!

Hi Michelline

It is good to start analyzing these issues at a young age, as in your case. I will give you something else to think about: Why are women in such disadvantage?

I believe women are in disadvantage because we suffer from the indefension syndrome. This means that we are so defenseless, that we do not think it is possible to change this chaos, and we do not see ourselves as capable of overcoming the situation.

Is this true? Of course not! Us women have to acknowledge the fact that we are born with rights, just because we are alive. WE DO NOT NEED TO ASK ANYONE TO GIVE US OUR RIGHTS. We need to ACT in consequence. This means, act empowered by the fact that we are not more than anyone, but we are not less either.

Once we achieve to gain the right attitude, it will be much easier to get into a room and say, proudly, that we are here in the world to care for every living and we need to get paid to do that. We will enforce the laws that give us better lives. We will CLAIM our place in every circle. And we will get it.

Don´t you think?

Hugs,

Jackie
