LES DIFFICULTES RENCONTREES AUX FILLES INTELLECTUELLES DANS LA VILLE DE BUKAVU

Même s’il est acquis que les filles doivent être éduquées, leur accès à l’enseignement est limité.

On estime qu’au moins 20 % des femmes sont victimes de violences physiques ou d’agressions sexuelles. Et ces agressions sont souvent le fait d’un homme de l’entourage.

C’est ainsi que certaines filles intellectuelles éprouve tant des difficultés, surtout celles liées à l’accès au travail.

Par Exemple :
 A Bukavu, avant qu’une fille décroche un quelconque boulot, il lui faut d’abord passer à l’acte sexuel avec le propriétaire de cette entreprise.

 Accepter d’être la femme du responsable d’une entreprise ou Institution quelconque avant d’être acceptée comme agent de cette dernière.

 Une fois qu’elle décroche facilement son boulot, elle sera maltraiter par, soit le Directeur (responsable de cette entreprise), soit avec certains dépendants de cette maison, et cela en lui donnant tant des travaux à tel point qu’elle sorte toujours au travail très fatigué et ce durant toute sa vie dans cette dernière.

 Même pour celles qui fréquentent encore l’Université, ont du mal à continuer, à cause des certains professeurs qui les déranges trop à l’école en voulant que ces filles fassent les mariages académique avec eux.

 etc.

Merci beaucoup ! À la prochaine.

Difficulties that intellectual girls face in Bukavu

Even if its a given that girls should be educated, their access to schooling is limited.

It is estimated that at least 20% of women are victims of physical violence or sexual assault. And these assults are often committed by a man in the family.

This is why several intellectual girls experience so many difficulties, above all ones linked to access to work.

For example:

- In Bukavu, before a girls starts any job, she has to first has to have sex with the boss of this business.

- Accepting to be the wife of the head of any business or institution before being accepted as an employee there.

- Once she easily lands the job, she will be mistreated by, either the director (head of the business), or by the dependants of her household, who give her so much work to the point that she always leaves for work very tired. And this lasts her entire life.

- Even for those who still go to university, they have difficulty continuing because of certain professors who bother them too much at school wanting them to engage in academic marriages with them.
- etc.
Thank you very much! Until next time!

Chère Anuarite,

Chère Anuarite,

Merci de partager avec nous votre voix et votre opinion. Votre journal est une révélation. L'instruction des filles est essentielle et j'apprécie beaucoup comment vous expliquez les difficultés pour les filles intellectuelles. Je me demande si vous savez pourquoi cette structure et ces pratiques contre les filles qui cherchent une éducation ou de travail sont encore en place? S'il vous plait, continuez à vous exprimer sur World Pulse. Vous êtes courageuse.

Bien à vous,
Grace
