LA DISCRIMINATION DE LA FEMME DANS LA VILLE DE BUKAVU

La population de la ville de Bukavu n’a pas encore confiance à la femme. Les habitants de notre ville n’ont pas encore compris que les femmes aussi à la capacité de conduire la société que les hommes. La raison pour la quelle la majorité des femmes de Bukavu travaillent souvent dans le secteur informel, notamment le petit commerce. Celle qui ont la chance obtenir un emploi dans une structure professionnelle occupent malheureusement pour la plupart des emplois sous qualifies dans des conditions précaires, notamment des emplois dans les quels leur droits ne sont pas respectes, elles sont présentes dans moins de secteurs que les hommes et sont sous représentes dans les organes de prise de décision.
En plus on ne donne pas a la femme des opportunités d occupent de poste de responsabilité, souvent on dit que la femme c est un être humain qui est faible
Ils ignorent que la femme peut contribuer de manière significative au développement d un pays, et cela dans tous les domaines, au même titre qu’un homme.

Piste de solution

Nous demandons au gouvernement, la communauté internationale, la société civile et le secteur prive qu’il puisse s associer pour supprimer les dispositions juridiques discriminatoires a l égard des Femmes,

The population of the town of Bukavu does not trust women. The people in our city have not yet realized that women are also capable of leading a company as men are.

The majority of women in Bukavu often work in the informal sector, including small business companies. Unfortunately, those who have the chance to get a job occupy most under-qualified jobs in precarious conditions, including jobs in which their rights are not respected. They are presented in fewer sectors than men and women are under-represented in decision–making parties.

Furthermore, women are not given opportunities to hold a position. Usually one says that women are weak. People ignore the fact that women can contribute as significantly to the development of a country, and development of all fields as men does.

Solution:

We asked the government, international community, civil society and private sectors whether they can work together to cancel the discriminatory legal provisions against women.
