VIOLENCE DES DROITS DES FEMMES

Les droits de la femme en R D Congo sont bafoués par les hommes égoïstes qui veulent s’approprier de tout les bien familiaux,Les analystes ont conclus que la population congolaise représentent 52.% pour les femme et 48% pour les hommes,En R D Congo les femmes sont plus représentes dans les activités génératrice de revenues ,Les travaux communautaires des nos villages sont exécutés par les femmes dans les camps,les églises sont inondes de femme qui offres les produits de leurs pasteurs compte tenu de toutes ces activités ;on constate que la femme est la ressource de l'économie dans la société.

Le jour du mariage les gents de l'Etat demandent aux futurs époux de déclarer leur mariage matrimonial.
cependant certains époux s'approprient les biens familiaux comme les maisons, les champs et les bétails.ils deviennent égoïstes et emploient les adjectifs possessifs mon et ma.lors du décé du mari , les garçons de la familles deviennent des héritiers sans associer les filles, quel injustice !

Dans leur réclamation ,ils se pointent en disant qu'ils sont chef s des familles. Vous comprennent que les femmes sont marginalisées.

Merci les amies de World pulse.

Women’s rights in DRCongo are violated by selfish men who want to keep family property for themselves. Analysts concluded that the Congolese Population is represented by 52% women and 48% men. In DRCongo, women are more involved in revenue bringing activities. Community works in camps are performed by women, churches are flooded by women who are there to offer their gifts to pastors. Given all these factors, we realise that women are the backbone to our society’s economy.

During weddings, state agents ask future husbands and wives to declare their matrimonial regime.
However, some men keep for themselves family property like houses, farms and livestock. They become selfish and use possessif pronouns like ‘My’. After the husband's death, boys of the family and not girls become heirs, what an injustice!

And they claim to be the head of the family. You therefore understand that women are thus marginalised.

Thank you World Pulse friends.

je comprends votre amertume

Bonjour et merci de votre contribution. C'est fou de savoir que certaines femmes sont victimes de maltraitance et de mépris no pas parce qu’elles sont moins intelligent que les hommes mais tout simplement parce qu"elles sont nés dans des sociétés régies par des lois patriarcales qui profitent plus aux hommes.

Tout de même, je pense que les relations hommes-femmes aujourd'hui doivent être celles de complémentarité et non de force . Vu sur cet angle, la collaboration sera gagnant-gagnant.

je ne pense pas que ce que veut la femme aujourd'hui c'est un monde dans lequel l'homme sera marginalisé mais plutôt un monde avec égalité se sexe et de genre. si l'ordre est renversé; la femme aura raté son but et serait passé à côté de ses aspirations et aurait fait comme des politiciens qui organisent des coups d'états contre des monarchies pour eux aussi en créer d'autres. une fois de plus merci pour votre contribution.

cordialement

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.

Keep Fighting for your rights

Around the world many women are subjected to discrimination, misdeeds and inequalities.

I applaud your passion in battling against your society's dogmatic beliefs.

Your voice will represent the adversity of DRCongo. Keep it up!

We need your strong voice!

Dear Yvonne,

Keep going with your strong voice, it is really needed to keep up the pressure to change the way society is organised. What are the practical solutions for making women more equal in the Congo? Perhaps you can make suggestions and spread these amongst your friends. Good luck with your campaigning.

Keep up the good work!!

Although sometimes we feel nothing is going to change, that's not true. We have to stand up for our rights, that's the only way to fight against injustice and discrimination. We can build up a better world for our daughters. What kind of legal measures do you think should be implemented in order to protect women's right to property?
All the best!
Jacqueline
