LA NOUVELLE TECHNOLOGIE

L’internet est devenu une réalité pour la femme .La nouvelle technologie pour le moment a une très grande importance dans le monde entier ce pourquoi nous voyons même nous qui semble avoir étudie jusqu’à un niveau quelconque vous pouvez avoir un titre de l’université mais si vous ne maîtriser pas l'informatique vous êtes sans valeur c'est pour cela tout le monde aujourd'hui cherche a se connecter dans le monde et l'on ne peut se connecter que par le seul moyen sur internet
La technologie du téléphone mobile a permis de lier les femmes et les filles aux informations et aux possibilités offertes par le marché aux membres de leurs familles et surtout les unes aux autres.
Pour moi l'impotence de la nouvelle technologies chez les femmes et les filles est d'une très grande importance car souvent la femme se voit déconsidérée dans toute chose donc pour elle c'est toujours la maternité et la cuisine maintenant si nous voyons que la femme vais prendre conscience de son développement c a d qu'elle veux se développer c'est une chose très importante car ça permet a la femme de se connecter avec les autres femmes du monde entier enfin de se faire prévaloir des leurs situation. Alors il y’a un petit problème par ce que il y’a un endroit que les femmes n’accès pas sur l’internet par ce que la ou l’habiter ce très lois pour arriver au centre maman shujaa, alors que il aurait la besoin de l’internet.

The new Technology

The Internet has become a reality for women; new technology currently has a great importance worldwide. Nowadays, even people who are educated at the university level are seen worthless if they are not computer savvy. Therefore, everyone seeks to connect and become connected with the world and the Internet seems to be the only means to do so.

Mobile technology has linked women and girls to information and possibilities, offered by the market, and connecting them to members of their families and to each other.

For me the importance of the new technologies for women and girls has a great impact because often the woman is disregarded in almost all domains. Motherhood and the kitchen have always consumed her time; whereas, now she will recognize and realize her growth (since what she wants is to develop). It is something important because it allows the woman to connect with other women around the world and finally discuss their situations. But there's a small problem that women, who live far from Maman Shujaa center, do not have the access to Internet. So, there is a need for Internet.

Merci!

Bonjour Chere Clementine,

Oui, je suis d'accord que l'Internet peut ouvrir autant de doores pour les femmes dont la vie a été limitée à bein qu'une épouse et de mère. Pour être en mesure de se connecter avec les femmes partout dans le monde et obtenir de nouvelles perspectives uniques et d'autres cultures est en train de changer la vie et l'autonomisation! Nous devons continuer la lutte pour s'assurer que chaque femme a un accès facile à l'Internet. Je suis tellement reconnaissante pour Mama Shujaa. Thank vous pour partager vos idées et j'espère que vous continuerez écrit.

Beaucoup d'amour,

Susan

Thank you for your post

Dear Clementine, it was exciting for me to read your post about women and the internet! To think you and I live across the world from each other but through this forum we can now have a connection is truly amazing. I look forward to reading more of your journal and learning more about you and your world. The internet is a powerful tool and will make the world more connected as we learn of each other's struggles and successes.

I am a former accountant, so I was interested to see that you are hoping to build a career in accounting. I now help both men and women to find work in their chosen filed of accounting.

Warm regards,

Elaine

merçi de votre commentaire, et de lire mon journal continuer.

very true

je suis d'accord avec vous ma chere car l'importance de l'internet c'est une question ou on en discute plus.
la majorite desd femmes Africaine surtout n'ont pas acces a l'internet et can depuis que le monde es devenue une village globale, nui a leur developpement et ceux de leurs societe.

women being emotional beingsneed to be encouraged by the stories and successes of their fellow sisters.
i can assure you, there are thingsi have had to do and dream because i read on the internet about women like Oprah Winfrey, and several others: they inspired me and set me ona course that has so far brought me to this day.
women need to access the internet.

Re: New Technology

Hi Clementine,

Thank you very much for your post. You provided an interesting perspective on how the internet is crucial for the empowerment and development of women across the world. It is very true that internet literacy has become a requirement in many areas of life. It is necessary for succeeding in many professions and it has become a major way for people to connect socially.

How do you think, specifically, women can best use the internet to communicate and empower themselves and each other? What do you think could be a successful way to get internet access to women in rural or removed areas?

Elizabeth

Merçi beaucoup aussi de votre commentaire et cet impossible mais ce bien que toutes les femmes ont besoin à l’internet. Mais ici a Bukavu il ya une seul centre médiatique, Pour mois pour toute les femmes accès à l’internet, ils ont avoir autre centre.

Thank you for sharing!

Your post is great Clementine, I enjoyed reading it and learning a bit more about where you are from. I support your views in that women can use the internet to connect with other women around the globe and share their life stories. I hope that internet access will become more accessible in the near future!

INTERNET ACCESS

Rural areas have been unfortunately been ignored and neglected by most gov't officials. Many believe it is tedious and hopeless to invest in these areas, talk less of women!
I think it is time we take education to the grassroots! Internet to an illiterate woman or young girl is like gold to a pig! It will be valueless in her eyes. She needs to SEE how valuable she is, important and indispensible to her family and society!
Education from the roots! Adult education centres where they can read and write and gradually introduce computer classes...side by side they learn how to read and write and how to use the internet!!!
We need MORE adult education or literacy centres!!!
