Violence of the Rights of Women

The village woman is a victim of violence, even in her home she is left with sorrows. The village woman, for example, each morning she wakes up she goes to the field she is there for seven hours to farm by herself. Returning from the field she must clean the house, she must look for food so that her family can eat.

As for her husband, he stays at home without doing anything playing in the house and wasting time. After the harvest the woman will go to sell the products so that she can earn money. It is at this point that the husband will intervene and take all the money and put it in his pocket. He is going to do what he wants, drink, eat and chase women.

His wife will stay home not knowing what to do with her children, there will be barely enough money received to pay for even their smallest needs. For me when I see all of this my head hurts to see how a woman can endure all this suffering without saying anything and without any real aid. It is severe. You see this is how it is.

This story was written for World Pulse’s Ending Violence Against Women Digital Action Campaign.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring an end to gender-based violence. The EVAW Campaign elicits powerful content from women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as vocal grassroots leaders, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.

Merci

Chère Riziki,

Merci beaucoup pour ayant partagé vos expériences de la violence privée. Toujours les média mettent l'emphase sur la violence de l'armée sans abordant les problèmes essentiels qui existent dans la maison. Il était interessant à voire comment les femmes travaillent dûr dans quelques domaines, pas seulement dans la maison. Pensez-vous qu'il existe des solutions pour affecter ces questions graves?

J'attends votre prochain poste,

Beverley

Dear Riziki,

THANK YOU for giving VOICE to the daily abuse and lack of human rights of women in their own home and families. There is such injustice and gender inequality within the role of a woman (wife) and man (husband), this must change.

How is it that men and society have strayed so far from their own humanity and forgetting they were raised by loving mothers. Violence, Inequality and Injustices are vicious cycles that needs to be interrupted and redirected, it is not easy but essential. Where to start? Education, Programs, Women band together and go on Strike will create havoc and attention -- local churches, leadership and families must be advocates and lead by example.

Women are AMAZING and if her tireless load of work were to be translated into monetary value, she would be equal to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of a company. Women are the economic force in the community, you provide and sustain LIFE for all! Stay strong and be vigilant for all the AMAZING WOMEN CEO'S of their household!

With gratitude,

Linda Riziki Ando
