VIOLENCES FAITES AU FILLES

C’est à travers les processus delà vie commune que les individues acquièrent la culture de leurs communautés :les normes ;les valeurs ;les attitudes,les croyances,les dictons,proverbes,les comparaisons,la traduction ,etc sont des véhicules actifs de la culture en Afrique .on les utilisent souvent pour trasmettres les attitudes aux jeunes .cependant les femmes sont présentées comme des individus subordonnés aux hommes ;a ce la subsiste ainsi la violence et la discrimination,à l’égard des femmes.chaque tribus ,chaque coutume a ses normes et exigences :comme par exemple chez les bashi ,une tribus de la RDC , les femmes ne devaient pas mangé le poulet ,les œufs ,le gésier de la poule,le foi d’une chèvre ;le lait ,etc …..elle ne devait pas hériter,ni diriger,etc…mais avec le temps elle peut tout manger sauf le gésier d’une volaille mais avec le temps même certaines choses.Elle continue à être victime de plusieurs violences non reportées.
• Suivons par exemple le cas de la petite MAOMBI sur cette photo qui a son petit frère au dos et qui a moins de cinq ans assume déjà plusieurs responsabilités (puiser de l’eau, laver, préparer, donner à manger, bref s’occuper des enfants qui l’entourent…) alors qu’elle même a aussi besoin d’être encadrer pour grandir. C’est pourquoi, il faut lutter contre les violences dès le bas âge autant qu’elles commencent.

VIOLENCE AGAINST GIRLS

It is through the process of common life that individuals acquire the culture of their communities.
Standards, values, behavior, beliefs, sayings, proverbs, comparisons, translation, etc are active means of passing on culture in Africa .We often use them to transfer customs to the young.
But women are presented as inferiorto men, in addition with violence and discrimination.
Each tribe, each custom has its standards and requirements: as for example with bashi, a DRC tribes, women were not allowed to eat chicken, eggs, the gizzard of a hen, the liver of a goat gizzard; milk, etc. They had no right to inherit or lead...With time she can now eat everything except the gizzard of any poultry.
She is still victim of several violences she does not mention or report.
• For example, let's follow the case of the small MAOMBI on this picture carrying her little brother on the back. Less than five years, she already has several responsibilities (fecth water, wash, cook, feed, in short taking care of children arround her...) while she also needs care and needs to be mentored and to grow. Therefore, we must fight against violences from the early age as they begin.
