LES FEMMES AFRICAINE SUBIT TOUJOUR LES CONSEQUENCE DANS LE MENAGE

Conditions de vie des hommes et des femmes en milieu rural
Conditions de vie au village
Les femmes, les enfants et les jeunes assurent une part considérable des activités de transport (de l'eau, du bois de chauffe, de la récolte à la maison, des céréales au moulin, des produits de la récolte au marché, des enfants malades au dispensaire, etc.). Des infrastructures insuffisantes rendent le travail fastidieux et pénible, tandis que des infrastructures bien développées permettent à la population de consacrer le temps et la main-d'oeuvre ainsi 'économisés' à d'autres activités productives telles que les activités d'entraide, la participation à des cours de formation ou l'engagement dans des causes sociales et communales.
Les questions suivantes permettent de déterminer des critères importants pour l'identification des effets des infrastructures villageoises sur les femmes et les hommes:
.
Place au sein de la famille
Droits et obligations des membres de la famille
Les conditions de vie des femmes et des hommes en milieu rural sont influencées par la place qu'ils occupent respectivement dans leurs familles. On notera que l'unité centrale de la société à prendre en compte, surtout dans le contexte africain, n'est pas une petite famille, mais une grande famille, parfois polygamique. En règle générale, chaque membre de la famille a des droits et des devoirs différents. La structure familiale et la liberté de mouvement ou la mobilité personnelle sont des facteurs particulièrement importants pour déterminer la place de chacun au sein de la famille. Il convient donc de demander:
le niveau de prospérité (Welfare Ranking) constitue une méthode participative tout à fait indiquée. Cette méthode permet de déterminer, à l'aide d'indicateurs définis par les groupes cibles, les différences de situation financière entre membres de la famille et entre villageois(es). Le résultat de cette forme de stratification relative de la société peut contribuer, entre autres, à l'identification des groupes cibles1.
Stabilité de la structure familiale
Les changements sociaux entraînent souvent une modification et une désagrégation des structures familiales. Cela a des répercussions non seulement sur la division du travail selon le genre et entre les membres de la société, mais aussi sur la place des femmes et des hommes dans la famille.
Comme dans de nombreux pays en développement, la contribution des femmes à l'entretien de la famille augmente lorsque la famille se trouve en situation économique difficile (revenus instables, etc.).
Si cette situation tend à accroître la charge de travail des femmes, elle a également pour effet d'inciter les femmes à se battre pour obtenir davantage de droits en compensation de leurs obligations plus importantes.

Pour cette effets vous comprenez que la femme subir beaucoup de conséquence dans la famille ce le femmes du monde ont toujours le travail de vulgarise la résolution 1325 et 1820 dans le milieu ruraux

AFRICAN WOMEN ALWAYS FACE CONSEQUENCES WITHIN DOMESTIC LABOR

The living conditions of men and women in rural areas
Conditions of village life
Women, children and youth are responsible for a considerable share of transportation related labor (water, firewood, harvest at home, the grain from the mills, harvested products to the market, sick children to the clinic, etc..). Insufficient infrastructure makes the work tedious and hard, while well-developed infrastructure enables people to devote time and labor so as to 'economize’ [time and energy] for other productive activities such as self-help activities, participation in training courses or engaging in social and communal causes.
The following questions determine important criteria for identifying the effects of village infrastructure on women and men:
.
Place in the family
Rights and obligations of family members
The living conditions of women and men in rural areas are influenced by the places they occupy in their respective families. It is important to note that the central unit of society to consider, especially in the African context, is not a small family, but a family that is sometimes polygamous. Typically, each family member has different rights and duties. Family structure and the freedom of movement or personal mobility are particularly important factors in determining one's place in the family. It is therefore appropriate to ask:

the level of prosperity (Welfare Ranking). This is an interactive approach that is entirely indicated. This method allows for the determination, using indicators defined by target groups, of differences in wealth amongst family members and villagers. The result of this form of relative stratification of society can contribute to the identification of the targeted groups.

Stability of the family structure
Social changes often cause a shift and disintegration of family structures. This has implications not only for division of labor based on gender and between members of the society but also on the position of women and men in the family.
As in many developing countries, women's contribution to the maintenance of the family increases when the family is in a difficult economic situation (unstable income, etc..).
If this tends to increase the workload of women, it also has the effect of encouraging women to fight for more rights as compensation for their most important obligations.

To this effect you understand that women suffer heavy consequence in the family so that women throughout the world still have a lot of work ahead to popularize resolutions 1325 and 1820 in the rural setting.
