Journée de la femme : La lâcheté d’un journal

womens.day.david.bartho

Beaucoup de personnes m’ont demandé ceci aujourd’hui :

“Hey Yashvin, ekrire ene l’article lo journée de la femme!”

Franchement vous dire, je ne savais pas quoi mettre comme contenu.

Mais en parcourant les journaux, j’ai eu la désagréable surprise de voir une caricature et une photo, précisément axées sur La journée de la Femme. Surpris car les deux montrent La Femme, victime de brutalité.

Et de plus, la caricature se trouve en première page dans la section : “Humeur de […]”!

Vous croyez que ça va faire rire les femmes? Demandez  à  votre maman / soeur / épouse / copine!

Je me demande bien si c’est la première chose qui passe dans la tête de ces journalistes quand on parle de ce jour spéciale aux yeux des femmes.

Vous savez déjà  de quel journal je parle, nul besoin de le préciser! Par contre, Le Matinal a dédié la deuxième page aux femmes, et je la trouve pas mal 😉

  1. Moi ce que je trouve aberrant, c’est qu’il faut attendre la journée de la femme pour parler de la condition de la femme… Alors ce n’est que le 8 mars qu’on s’en soucie de la condition de la femme dans notre monde? Et les autres jours, on en fait quoi, on continue à lire les atrocités faites aux femmes dans la presse? Je suis contre le fait qu’une journée spéciale soit décrétée à chaque fois par des politiques pour soi-disant se mettre du bon côté pour une cause juste. Vivement que ça change!

  2. I am guessing you are referring to this strip from L’Express: http://lexpress.mu/lexpress_cms/gall_content/2010/3/2010_3$humourimg108_Mar_2010_081726207.jpg

    I find nothing wrong with it. We don’t need to hide or disguise the fact that women are still beaten nowadays. On one hand, it could symbolise the essence of the day, which is to stop oppression of women, on the other hand, it is more likely that this pretty much symbolises what Sachin said above, that people tend to think that because we have one day dedicated to women, we can be nice that day, on other days, the oppression continues. The fact that the date is mentioned means you can’t beat women on that day, on other days, it’s fine. It just shows how useless and politically-motivated this day is. Actions speak much louder.

    1. I can’t understand why this picture is included in the humour section(!?)
      Does he find it funny that women should not be beaten?

      Just as Valentine’s day, this ‘special’ day should not be a one-day show off only… Yes, we need actions rather than speeches!

  3. Just to point it out, the section is called Humour but all the drawings by POV have the legend “Humeur de POV”… which can be understood as “state of mind”. The “Humour” title problem comes from the fact that all the section dedicated to caricatures is called “Humour”… Mauritian common culture that all “tikomik” should be humoristic.

  4. I wish to stress Sachin’s point too. But then, as a woman, maybe we are at fault to?Women, are still struggling for their equal footage today still. One example, today sitting in class at UOM, a good friend of mine, remarked that girls outnumbered boys in class. But the truth is that, few of us girls, did get to where we dreamed of, call that lack of determination from our part, misopportunities, wrong choices, or maybe misconceptions from men and women alike…so girls just don’t forget, that this day, is also to reflect on our past achievements, and what we still have to overcome in the future…beside the obvious,of course…

  5. Violence against women is still widespread in Mauritius in one form or another. One of the main factors is alcoholism in the male population which contributes to the deterioration of the family unit.

  6. I think this is black humour in a sense. Some irony about how the world is celebrating Women’s Day and only for this day the sign non violence against women is like being applied.

    It concurs with Sachin’s comment that it’s only this day that eyes are driven to the living conditions of women, that you will hear political figures delivering long speeches about the welfare of women in Mauritius while everyday may it be the 8 March or not women are being ill-treated…

    It’s a deeper message than a joke, I believe.

  7. Who gives a frak of the International Women’s Day? As if a day dedicated to bitches would make them more ‘respectable’ or…whatever the frak you wish they would be?

    And then you’ve n00b5 talking about the need for female leaders and so on. Female leaders must be qualified in the fields they wish to lead. Gender is a non-issue in life in current times…except maybe for procreation (not for long though.)

    What about beaten up bitches, you say? They are frakin’ weak for a number of reasons (society’s crisis of crises.) Dedicating 1 day to bitches won’t make them strong.

    International Bitches’ Day..pffrr…
