English translation by community member Joanna Birkner.

Parity comes from the Latin word “Paritas,” that is to say equal to, alike, the same strength, the same talent

Parity between men and women aims to fight against disparities generated by inequality between the sexes--usually to the advantage of men. The principles of parity can be implemented by laws that attempt to remedy perceived disparities as injustice. 

Moreover, inequality occurs at work; women do not receive certain benefits that men receive.

Parity between men and women affects several different domains:

Wages (equivalent employment and pay grade) Political Representation (voting) Employment (access to a profession and equal opportunities in recruitment materials) Education (literacy, education level, etc.)

So that this parity is fair to both sexes without discrimination, women are entitled to inheritance, to lead companies etc. 

And even the UN, in particular the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, condemns discrimination:

"All persons are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to the equal protection of the law. In this respect, the law shall prohibit any discrimination and guarantee to all persons equal and effective protection against discrimination on any ground such as race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status." (Article 6) 

With that, the gender balance will be in peace, if we harmonize our consciences in avoiding injustice for sustainable development in the country and the world, from now until 2030. Our national mantra, "For sustainable development by 2030, let us now apply gender parity in peace." To achieve this goal we must reflect a lot, wash ourselves of some despicable habits, and look at human nature in a new light.

Chère EDITH!

Merci pour porter votre attention sur mon journal, vous et moi cherchons à faire les meilleurs de nous même pour cette égalité de l'homme-femme dans simplicité, respect, amour pour atteindre l'apogée.

Brigitte

Merci pour votre poste éloquent, Brigitte! Je partage vos opinions sur l'importance de la parité femme-homme. Je l'ai lu avec beaucoup d'intérêt. Il est vrai que le manque de parité affecte tous les aspects de la vie. Pouvez-vous me dire plus sur le thème national, « Appliquons la parité homme-femme maintenant dans la paix pour le développement durable d’ici 2030. » Comment la RDC envisage-t-elle mettre en œuvre la parité femme-homme? Merci encore pour partager vos idées.

En amitié,

Joanna

Joanna,

Nous sommes représentées dans le gouvernement mais le travail est encore dure pour arriver à la perfection. Il y a un problème qu'il faut ôter chez les femmes l'orgueil et de se faire valoir par rapport aux autres femmes qui n'ont pas le plate forme sociale. Défendre les autres c'est un honneur.
