La journee internationale des femmes, celle qui celebre les Luttes et combats des femmes pour leurs droits arrive. Le 8 mars 2018 ou sont les droits tant attendus des femmes?

1- en politique, au Liban la loi electorale, une proportionnelle en image une majoritaire en realite , ne joue pas en faveurs des femmes. Avec le score de 4 sur 128 femmes de notre parlement actuel , j ‘espere que le nombre de candidates soit grand, notamment dans les listes qui vont atteindre le quotient.

Au gouvernement, Une seule femme, une ministre. En esperant un gouvernement paritaire pour 2018,

2- les droits sociaux? Beaucoup de femmes travaillent toujours dans le secteur informel. Sans droits sociaux ou certains benefices minimes. Au Liban notre loi du travail ne s’applique toujours pas sur les travailleuses domestiques etrangeres. Precarite pointue.

3- droits economiques? Aucune couverture sociale pour celles qui ne travaillent pas ou celles qui n’ont pas d’enfants qui travaillent .

4- le mariage divorce, heritage, adoption… des lois personnelles gerees par des tribunaux religieux…

5- la nationalite? Toujours pas de projet de loi presente par les deputes contre une des discriminations les plus graves contre des citoyennes.

6- la violence? Toujours pas prise au serieux dans le cadre familial… un viol conjugal n’n’est toujours pas criminalise, ni l’harcelement sexuel ….

J’attends les nouveaux parlementaires pour un chantier legislatif qui rende aux femmes des droits dus depuis longtemps…

At the Birthdays, i am used to the piniata activity. A violent activity that i usually prefer not to play. Kids do hit a box, and than search for the bonbons and chocolates that it contains.

Today, i organised my son 1st birthday at home, my 4 years son requested a piniata. Therefore i decided to transform this game.

First “we ” created the piniata and didn’t buy one. Just creating it was an activity. a special moment with my 4 years son. We used recycled paper and a pampers box that i wanted to throw. Recycled paper was after that colored by my son…. 30 minutes of bliss for me! His little brother was able to nap in the meantime 🙂

Two: during the birthday i explained to the kids that this piniata is different. Each kid needed to draw on it Something they Disliked. Some kids answered school, le loup, others told me their “mums”.

They also painted what they disliked on the piniata. A full activity. That took at least 15 minutes. Kids were able to express their feeling of dislike , while drawing on the piniata, with the colors they choose.

Third: i asked them to hit the piniata on which they have painted what they disliked.

Kids were Happy expressing their anger on the piniata. Our piniata didn’t contain chocolate. The chocolate goodie bag was given to them in a different activity. Our piniata was used as an exutoire…

Here is a short video in which my son explain it in french…

Understanding Unpaid Care Work: Women’s Empowerment Beyond the Paid Economy

The advancement of women’s rights and economic empowerment in market systems contributes to the economic well-being of families, communities, and nations.

How can we do this better?

Market systems programs are increasingly targeting women’s economic empowerment. However, approaches to support women to participate in paid work often assume that women’s time is elastic. They fail to consider roles and responsibilities in the household and the community, and the unpaid labor needed to sustain the households, community and the economy. This can undermine both development outcomes and market activities. For women to fully enjoy their economic rights in an optimized, shared and sustained way, the interlinkages between unpaid care work and market systems approaches need to be understood and addressed.

What is unpaid care work?

Unpaid care work is a group of activities that serves people in their well-being, outside the paid economy. It includes (i) direct care of people; (ii) housework; and (iii) unpaid community work. It is work because it involves time and energy in and it is shaped by power relations and social norms.

Unpaid care work is a social good. It becomes problematic when it is:

1. invisible, and therefore undervalued or ignored

2. characterized by extremely heavy care tasks, most notably in poor communities without adequate access to services; and,

3. unequal, meaning that the biggest responsibility falls on women and girls in poor communities.
