English translation by community member Noor Masannat.

Following the 1352 resolution, women must have access to the decision-making process in order to promote gender equality. These remains just words in the Democratic Republic of Congo given the poor governance characterized by multiple violations of legal texts for the rule of law. Only women from the presidential majority have the financial means for their empowerment and can access decision-making positions.

Only human rights activists and especially the great world powers can push our government to respect the law, so we could have good governance. They should also think about the Congolese women’s’ success and empowerment in their political participation and in the decision-making positions.
