Gender equality is everybody’s business

Nathan, a young reporter from Kinshasa, is sharing with you the key messages he wishes to broadcast for the International Women’s Day.

We have just celebrated the International Women’s Day but let’s not forget that it is also a day for the young girl.

We, young reporters, want to give to all children the best chances in life in order to enable the girl to rise. A new year has begun and it is time to condemn all bad things that can happen to girls because they are girls. I’m talking about harmful traditional practices such as forcing a child to marry before adulthood, early marriage.

We would like everybody to blame those who rape girls.

In my daily life, I care about including my sisters and my girl friends in all I’m doing: they have the rights to do whatever they want, as much as I do.

Parity must be respected in schools: to educate a girl is to educate a nation but to educate a girl is especially offering her a good future.

Happy international Women’s Day to all of the girls from the DRC and from the rest of the world
