STOP AUX VIOLENCES SEXUELLES FAITES AUX FEMMES

L’IMPACT DE LA VIOLENCE SEXUELLE SUR LA VICTIME ET LA COMMUNNAUTE

Une femme y, mariée et mère de 6 enfant ces malfaiteur vient dans sa maison ils tuent le mari de la femme y pendant que les enfants de la femme y, terrorisés assistent à cette scène d’horreur. Puis ils violent la Femme y, brutalement l’un après l’autre. Les enfants regardent ce qui se passe. Ses malfaiteur a prés avoir termine, quittent les lieux a prés avoir pillé toute la maison la femme y, et ses enfants courent vers leur cher papa tué et le regardent, le Cœur brisé .ils l’enterrent rapidement en silence.
Durant les mois qui suivent, la femme y, ne se sent pas bien ; elle souffre de douleurs multiple et éprouve des sentiments d’honneur et de honte .la famille essaie de reprendre le dessus, mais c’est dur. Les enfants grandissent portant en eux, le choc de tout ce qu’ils ont vécu. Ils essaient de consoler leur maman en l’aidant en ne la surchargeant pas de leurs propres soucis à eux. La femme y, tombe très souvent malade. Une voisine lui propose de consulter un médecin et de faire un dépistage, le docteur lui dit qu’elle a attrapé le VIH –SIDA et elle sait immédiatement qu’elle a attrapé le virus lors de viols. La femme y, est choquée et déprimée. Le viol détruit sa vie : son âme, son corps, son sentiment de dignité et son avenir. La violence sexuelle subie par la femme y, devant ses propres enfants ne la tue pas directement physiquement (comme son mari) mais elle la tue socialement, moralement psychiquement …… et indirectement physiquement aussi (contamination – au VIH /Sida) les enfants de la femme y, ne sont pas davantage physiquement tués mais ils subissent quasiment le même sort que leur maman .voyions combien la violence sexuelle est porteuse de mort sous diverses formes et par plusieurs voies différentes. C’est la raison pour la quelle j’ai élevé ma voix en crier à haute STOP, STOP, STOP aux violences faites aux femmes

MERCI

Stop sexual violence against women

The impact of sexual violence on victim and community

A woman here, married and a mother of six children. Malefactors came to her house and killed her husband, during which the woman and her children were terrorized witnessing this horrifying scene. Afterwards, they raped the woman, brutally one after another. The children watched as all this happened. These malefactors left the scene when they finished and looted her house, and the children ran to their dear father who was killed and looked at him, heartbroken. They buried him quickly in silence.

During the following month, the woman did not feel well; she suffered from multiple pains and experienced horror and shame. Her family tried to get over it, but it was hard. Children have grown up carrying with them the shock of what they experienced. They tried to comfort their mother by helping her and not overloading their worries to her. The woman became sick very often. A neighbor suggested her to see a doctor and get tested; the doctor told her that she had HIV-AIDs and she knew immediately that she caught the virus during rape. The woman was shocked and depressed. Rape destroyed her life, her soul, her body, her sense of dignity and future. The sexual violence suffered by the woman here, in front of her own children, who was not killed physically (like her husband) but was ruined socially, morally, mentally, and indirectly physically as well (contamination – HIV/AIDS). The children were not physically killed, but they suffered practically almost the same fate as their mother. See how sexual violence carries death in diverse forms and by several different ways. This is the reason for which I raised my voice screaming loudly STOP, STOP, STOP violence against women.
