Article for worldpulse
Decades in the Democratic Republic of the Congo The woman was condemned by the customs and traditions to keep silent in the face of differences violation of their rights woman are still victims. Unfortunately, many of them do not even know they are right and are still victims because they cant have inherited these customs and practice since the time of the ancestors. Through the Web2.0 I find an opportunity to talk with other women about what is happening in the DRC, the different violations experienced by women but also to talk to women themselves to see how little we arrive at a solution deal with this situation which continues to marginalize Congolese women.
While around the world, the emergence of new communications technologies and information on Web2.0 allow people to access information, Congolese women are lagging behind as regards the use of these media and even Web2.0.
Web2.0 will share with other women on issues affecting women, especially gender and empowerment of women remains a major obstacle to the independence of women who majorities expect much on men financial plan.
What excites me as it is to know what women think of the various violations of their rights and put us all together to find strategies to establish our rights are respected.
Web2.0 is a possible solution in cases where women in North Kivu and the DRC will be able to connect to the Web2.0 and be able to break the silence imposed on them by the customs and traditions Congolese prevent the woman to say what she thinks, and even demand their rights.
"Unity is strength", say Web2.0 will be a force if we manage to create this network, through our publications information which will revolt the women themselves and their awareness to make all promoting our rights.
In my case, these tools will allow me to get in touch with other women around the world, share their experiences with them and see how they got to overcome the difficulties related to stigma and discrimination in against women. And also how to make women's rights are respected. We can also see the appearance of the empowerment of women remains for me the greatest challenges for women as being at hundred percent dependent on men economically, they have difficulty enforcing their rights.
