AGIR CONTRE TOUTES FORMES DES VIOLENCES FAITES A LA JEUNE FILLE

Dans la communauté la fille est souvent négligée pour son développement, au départ les parents donnent beaucoup d’affection au garçon qu’à la fille suite à la métamorphose de mentalité. La coutume rétrograde favorise les garçons que les filles ; les garçons seront scolarisés mais les filles non. C’est pour quoi il y a beaucoup d’analphabètes femmes et filles de n’avoir pas exécutés leurs domaines faites. La femme et fille sont des personnes les plus ciblées pour la violence des leurs droits. Malgré les progrès que le monde est entrain de se surpasser en matière de droits de la femme (célibataire ou mariée) continue à être victime de l’intolérance du sexe opposé. Quelque soit ses capacités morales, intellectuelles, religieuses et potentielles. Ces cas recensés sont des violences parce que la législation, notamment le code pénal et le code de famille, en les instituant comme telles, établit en même temps, leur caractère socialement injuste et discriminatoire, portant ainsi atteinte à la personne et aux droits de la femme.
- Le refus de payer à la femme mariée travailleuse les avantages sociaux, le harcèlement sexuel, l’imposition de l’autorisation maritale comme préalable à toute embauche et les pratiques coutumières défavorable à la femme constituent aussi des violences au regard de la convention sur l’élimination de toutes les formes de discrimination à l’égard de la femme et fille. Pour les agissement faitent à l'égard des femmes et filles :
- Les propos injurieux (même en public)
- Les coups et blessures
- La dot impayée
- Les pratiques coutumières (polygamie)
- L’autorisation maritale
- La négligence ou refus de payer les frais scolaire aux jeunes filles
- Le taux d’analphabète pour femme et fille augmentent
Nous devons enseigner les gens de sortir dans l’ignorance et les former pour la renaissance de mentalité ; montrer aux gens que ni n’est censé contre la loi. Procéder à l'élimination de toutes formes des violences faites à la femme et fille. Avoir un véritable changement et durable de mentalité. Et la communauté sera en sécurité pour un développement durable.

Reaction towards all forms of violence against young girls

In the community girls are often overlooked for their development; from the beginning, parents display a lot of love for boys than girls following the change in mentality. Retrograde customs favor boys over girls; boys will be educated, but girls will not. This is why there are many more illiterate women and girls who have not reached their potential. Women and girls are the most targeted persons for violation of their rights. Despite the progress that the world is achieving in terms of women's rights (single or married), women continue to be the victims of intolerance from the opposite sex regardless of her moral, intellectual, religious and potential abilities. These listed cases are identified as violence because the law, including the Criminal Code and Family code, by establishing such codes, establish at the same time, their socially unjust and discriminatory characters; discriminating against individual and women's rights.

Refusal to pay a working married woman benefits, sexual harassment, imposition of marital consent as prerequisite to employment, and unfavorable customary practices to women also constitute violence as stated in the convention over the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women and girls. Harm against women and girls are:

-Abusive or offensive language (even in public)

-Assaults and injuries

-Unpaid dowry

-Customary practices (polygamy)

-Husband's consent

- Neglect or refusal to pay the school fees for girls

-Increase in illiteracy rate for women and girls

We need to take people out of the dark ages and train them so that they can change their mentality; show them that no one is to violate laws. Proceed with the elimination of all forms of violence done to women and girls. Have a real and lasting change of mentality, and the community will be safe for sustainable development.
