nos coutumes et la femme

Dans mon pays les femmes ne sont pas considérer dans tous les domaines ;même dans nos coutumes qui cherche toujours a négliger les femmes comme vous pouvez les remarquez dans une famille trouvant les filles et garçons mais au moment d’héritage les filles n'ont pas accès.
Et vous pouvez entendre dire''mwasi atonga ka mboka te''ce une situation qui dit que une femme ne peut jamais construire un pays.la femme occupe joujours la deuxième place après l'homme partout a la maison en l’église et même au travail.Certains coutumes ne veulent pas envoyer leurs filles l’école pour dire que ''masomo ya mwanamuke inaishiya mu mafiga''pour dire que les études de la femmes ne valent en rien.tout cela pour sous estimer la femme.
Ce pourquoi la femme reste à la maison s'occuper des enfants et autres travaux ménager
j'aimerai a se que toutes filles vont a l’école pour savoir comment connaitre leurs droits.

our customs and wife
In my country women are not considered in any area, even our customs always seek to neglect women. As you can notice, in a family we have girls and boys, but at the time of inheritance, girls don’t have access.
And you will hear “Mwasi atonga ka mboka te” meaning a woman can never build a country.
The woman always takes the second place after the man everywhere; at home, in church even at work.
Certain customs don’t want to send girls to school saying ''masomo ya mwanamuke inaishiya mu mafiga'' meaning; the education of the woman has no value. All of this is just to under estimate the woman. This is why the woman stays at home taking care of the children and the home chores.
I would like that all the girls should go to school and learn how to know their rights.

les femmes peuvent batir le pays

Bonjour Mme Riziki
Merci pour votre contribution.
Je pense que c’est par ignorance que les hommes pensent que les femmes ne peuvent pas bâtir la nation. Dieu merci, les femmes comme vous sont la pour montrer le contraire.

Dear Riziki, Thank you very

Dear Riziki,
Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts here on World Pulse with us. I think your demand that all girls should go to school and know their rights is absolutely essential. It actually should be natural, but obviously it is not.
Do you have the feeling that there is anything that can be done among the women in your community to initiate some change? Do you think that that external help could do anything?
I'd love to hear more from your personal experiences in your home community.
Warm regards, Katharina

je pense

bonjour encore une fois je suis très contente de te savoir Mme,ce la me fait très mal au couer de voir comment les filles sont discriminer ça me fait si mal.je suis enseignante dans une école, est dans ma classe le nombre de garçons est très élever par rapport a ce lui de filles,est tu peut voir deux enfants d'une même famille venaient ensemble a l’école, mais a un certain moment tu va voir la fille ne vient plus mais en voulant posser la question aux parents, ils vont te dire que se faute aux moyens, est ceux qui ont peut de moyens pour le faire, vont te dire qu'ils n'ont pas l'argent a perdre pour les etudes d'une fille.
Donc,tu voie que nous avons deux problème, mais pense qu'avec l'aide de la communauté world pulse tout ira bien vraiment.

Girls and Boys-are they equal?

Hello Riziki,

I am sorry to hear that girl in your country is not treated with the same respect as boys. As a woman i cannot imagine not having the power to attend school, earn money and help to take care of my family. I believe that if girls get an education they will help society grow. On the other hand, how can men say they are educated if they don't see the value of educating their daughters. Again a come back to a belief I hold that men are afraid that if women get educated they no longer have power.
