DROIT A LA VIE

 LA FEMME RURALE A DROIT A LA VIE
La femme du village vie dans des conditions inhumaine ;elle vit dans un endroit très reculé,elle n’a pas accès à la formation ni l’ information c’est au village qu’ont trouve un taux très élevé des femmes même des hommes analphabètes. Voilà qu’à ce même endroit, on lessive, on se lave, on fait la vaisselle, les vaches boivent et piétinent dans l’eau, on puise…, sans connaître l’ampleur du danger qui les guette. La répartition inéquitables des tâches en défaveur de la fille ne la donne l’occasion ni le temps de se concentrer aux études ni à la formation. C’est dans cette catégorie que l’ignorance bat son plein.

Ici vous remarquerez que ce sont les femmes même enceintes et les jeunes filles qui sont présentes. Lessiver et puiser de l’eau, faire la vaisselle, quelquefois garder les vaches, revient aux jeunes filles et aux femmes. C’est aux parents que revient le rôle d’éduquer et d’instruire les enfants sans distinction des sexes. La femme en tant qu’éducatrice de premier niveau, doit véhiculer des bonnes valeurs à tous les enfants sans exception. . C’est à avec elle que viendra le changement compte tenu de son influence à condition qu’elle soit elle-même informée. Cela aura de l’impact positif dans la société car dit on « éduquer une femme c’est éduqué toute une nation ».

The Right to Life

RURAL WOMEN HAVE THE RIGHT TO LIFE

A woman from the village lives in inhumane conditions; she lives in a very isolated area, she does not have access to education or to information. It is in the village that one finds a very high rate of illiterate women and even men. Here, in this same area, one washes clothes, one washes himself or herself, one does the dishes, the cows drink and stamp in the water, and one collects water..., without knowing the magnitude of the impending danger. The inequitable distribution of tasks given to girls does not give them the opportunity, nor the time to concentrate on their studies or on their schooling. It is in this category that ignorance is in full swing.

Here you will notice that there are women even pregnant women and young girls who are present. Women and young girls are given the responsibility to wash clothes and collect the water, wash the dishes, and sometimes watch the cows. It is the parents who have the task to educate and to instruct children regardless of their gender. The woman as an educator at the primary level, must convey the right values to all children without exception… It is because of her, that change will come through her influence, on the condition that she be informed. This will have a positive impact on society because it is said that to “educate a woman is to educate an entire nation.

Cikwanine chihyoka joelle,
Merci pour votre récit! Je le trouve très encourageant, surtout pour les femmes. Vous avez raison en disant que les femmes peuvent influencer les enfants, et donc, elles peuvent influencer tout le monde. C'est important à dire que les femmes ont le pouvoir de changer les circonstances et de créer la justice, même si c'est dificile. Je vous encourage de continuer à écrire!
