VIOLENCE BASE SUR LE GENRE

La Constitution de la République Démocratique du Congo du 18 Février 2005 votée après
Référendum souligne en ses articles 12, 13 et 14 l’égalité des droits, des chances et des sexes entre les Congolaises et Congolais ainsi que l’obligation d’éliminer toutes les formes des violences à l’endroit de la femme dans la vie publique et privée.
Malgré cela les écarts entre Homme et Femme sont très élevé sur 100% Homme presque seul 5 % Femme intégré dans le gouvernement congolais.
Les femmes ont un faible accès à l’information, à l’éducation et aux autres services no spécifier.

Dans la vie domestique, les inégalités entre les garçons et les filles sont observées à travers les taux de scolarisation et de déperdition scolaire ainsi que celui d’alphabétisation
L’analphabétisme touche un grand nombre de femmes et cela surtout en milieu rural. Une
Femme adulte sur deux est analphabète contre un homme adulte sur cinq. Le taux d’analphabétisme des Femmes est très élevé para port aux Hommes.

Les femmes et les filles sont en effet livrées à la prostitution, soumises à l’esclavage sexuel, aux mariages et grossesses forcés ; conséquences de l’apprentissage de l’utilisation des violences sexuelles comme arme de destruction massive par les troupes d’agression par les hommes armés sous leur commandement. Quelle cela l’avenir de Femme congolaise si qu’elle n’est pas intégrée dans la société ?

VIOLENCE BASED ON GENDER

The Constitution of the Democratic Republic of the Congo of February 18, 2005, voted after referendum, underlines in its articles 12, 13 and 14 the equality of rights, of opportunities and of the sexes between Congolese men and women as well as the obligation to eliminate all forms of violence against women in public and private life.
Despite that the discrepancies between men and women are very high with 100% men and only about 5% women integrated into the Congolese government. Women have limited access to information, to education and to other unspecified services.

In domestic life the inequalities between boys and girls are noted in terms of rates of education and losses of schooling as well as literacy. Illiteracy touches a lot of women and especially in rural areas. One adult female out of two is illiterate as opposed to one adult man out of five. The rate of illiteracy of women Is very high in relationship to men.

Women and girls are in fact delivered to prostitution, subject to sexual slavery, to marriages and forced pregnancies; consequent to aggressive troops and the men armed under their orders learning the use of sexual violence as a massive destructive weapon. What kind of future is there for the Congolese woman if she is not integrated into society?

J'ai traduit votre journal

Chère Esperance,

J'ai traduit votre journal en anglais. Vous êtes une bonne voix pour la femme Congolaise. C'est affreux qu'elles soient soumises a l'esclavage sexuel. Il faut qu'elles aient les mêmes chances que les hommes!

Bien à vous,

Nancy
