VIOLENCE DOMESTIQUE

Les violences domestiques sont des abus et autres exploitations de nature sexuelle, physique, psychologique et moral qui sont commis à l’égard des femmes et filles à la maison par les membres de la famille ou bien de la communauté (partenaire, parent,…….)
Nous situerons par exemple le cas suivants:
-un homme qui frappe régulièrement son épouse
-les inégalités observées dans certaines familles dans la distribution des biens d’héritage entre homme et femme, fille et garçon.
-Certains hommes refusent de donner à leurs femmes ou bien filles l’autorisation d’aller travailler dans des bureaux /entreprises.
-les inégalités entre fille et garçon dans la repartions des taches en famille surtout en ce qui concerne les activités de ménages.
-la sur exploitation des femmes et filles en famille ou communauté par leurs maris, parents, frères en ce qui concerne la survie du foyer. Les activités génératrices de revenus reviennent en grande partie à la femme seule. Elle a la charge de subvenir aux besoins alimentaires, vestimentaires, sanitaires des enfants et même des autres membres de la famille.
Nous avons par exemple le témoignage d’une femme de notre quartier à qui le mari avait interdit d’aller travailler dans une entreprise car il croyait que la femme devait coucher avec les autres hommes ou son chef.
En Bref, les violences domestiques qui se vissent dans nos familles sont nombreuses et ce sont les femmes et les filles qui en sont victimes, et sont commises par les membres de la famille (communauté, le partenaire, parent, garçons) à l’égard à cause de leurs sexes féminins.

Domestic violence

Domestic violence is abuse and other sexual, physical, psychological and moral exploitations committed against women and girls at home by family members or the members of the community (partner, parent, etc.)

We have the following examples:

-a man who beats his wife regularly

-inequality seen in some families in the distribution of inheritance between man and woman, boy and girl.

-Some men prohibit their wives or daughters from going to work in offices or companies.

-inequalities between girls and boys in the family regarding the uneven distribution of tasks in the family, especially those relevant to household activities.

-Over exploitation of women and girls in family or community by their husbands, parents, brothers regarding the survival of the household. The income-generating activities returned mostly back to the woman alone. She has the responsibility of providing food, clothing, sanitary for children and even other family members.

For example, we have the testimony of a woman in our neighborhood whose husband had forbidden her to work in a company because he believed the woman should have sex with other men or her head.

In brief, the number of domestic violence which has penetrated into our families is large, and it is the women and girls who are victims of the violence committed by family members (community, partner, parent, and boys) because they are females.
