LES MARIAGES FORCE PAR LES FILLES EN RDC

Les filles sont disposé a contracté ne fusse que les mariage mais la préparation de leur vie car l’éducation l’éducation de la jeune fille c'est l’éducation de toute la société pourquoi la fille ne pas prépare pour les études pour devenir une mère de la société, mais comme la tradition implique la fille dans le mariage pour devenir une gardienne principale de la culture sociale et familiale .
Ceci pour la fille crée de mythe pour sa promotion et de stigmatisation car après le mariage la fille ne vallée plus a rien et de le bas age elle été considéré toujours inférieure au garçons , nous les filles et femmes de la RDC nous choisissons l’éducation égale ,l’égalité égale de toutes les enfants ,nous voulons la paix pour tous et l'autonomie pour tous.
car la non scolarisation des filles les exposent a des multiple problèmes pour leur vie ,des viol et toute autres formes de violences sexuelles ,elles vivent dans la loisivetes et en voulant gagne leur vie elles sont exposes a de maladies sexuellement transmissibles et ceci naisse la discrimination,la stigmatisation dans la société .
En générale nous tous femmes et filles de la RDC demandons les études et en particulier nous femes et filles du SUD- KIVU nous demandons la paix ,les études ,et l’égalité des enfants dans nos familles.

Forced marriages for girls in the DRC

Girls are willing to get married to prepare for life because the education of young girls is the education of the entire society. Why don't girls prepare themselves for their studies in order to become a mother of society? It's because tradition calls for girls to be married to become the principal guardian of social and familial culture.

For the girl, this creates myths about her advancement and stigmatization, because after marriage, the girl is not worth worth anything and from a young age she has been consistently considered inferieur to boys.

We, girls and women of the DRC, choose equal education, equality for all children. We want peace and autonomy for all. for all.

The lack of schooling for girls expose them to multiple types of problems, such as rape and all other forms of sexual violence, they live in idleness and -- by trying to earn a living -- they are exposed to sexually transmitted diseases. From this situation is born discrimination and stigmatization in society.

In general, all of us women and girls of the DRC, ask to be allowed to study. All of us women from South-Kivu Province ask for peace, being able to study, and the equality for the children in our families.
