Le Statut de la Femme dans la Société Mauricienne

Le statut de la femme était, auparavant, comparable à celui d’un enfant. Le stéréotype féminin montre que la place des femmes est à la maison, à s’occuper des tâches ménagères, des enfants et de leur époux. Les droits des femmes étaient limités et très peu d’entre elles avaient une place, dite valorisante, dans la société.

C’est souvent uniquement lors de la journée de la femme, célébrée le 8 mars, qu’on l’honore. Cependant, des progrès ont été faits et le statut de la femme est bien plus haut placé. Elle est même considérée comme l’égal de l’homme. Mais ce n’est pas toujours le cas et plus particulièrement dans la société patriarcale qu’est l’Ile Maurice.

A new year is full of optimism and opportunity for many young people, presumably why they want to improve themselves as the year starts.

Who Cares?

We have been taught all our lives that to be decent human beings means that we exist on this earth to (as far as we can) make life less difficult for others, and in turn, make them less difficult for us. To feel like we have a greater purpose and to feel like we are making a difference, we need to help our fellow human beings in any way we can.

This attitude is ideally also meant to extend to monitoring our behaviour so that our impact on nature and the world, in general, is as positive as possible. However, every day, the human race fails to inspire because the world has become such an incredibly harsh place to call home.
