Impact des médias sur l'émancipation des femmes au Sénégal. Approche historique (1960-2010)

Abstract : The power of women in politics, before, during and after colonization, has not declined with the power of media. Through the associative life, women have managed to prevail by empowerment in civil society, despite the constraints of polygamy, excision and levirate marriage, since the time of independence in 1960. But with the informal trade, women come together to develop a strategy to escape. The emergence of a feminine power, could waver existing strengths. About polygamy, what could be more natural to have several wives for a Muslim, to the extent that religion encourages it. While ignorance of family planning, the repetition of birth, make them sick and destroyed the integrity of women. Regarding informal trade, becomes a lever of emancipation which affirm their social, economic empowerment and recognition of the society to care after for their ''Borom Kër'', the householder. The future is concentrated in associative areas in different villages. The group therefore allows women an education and a reduction of illiteracy. Awareness of their power over men is present in their work force. When Wolof woman managed to supplant her husband by informal trade, went to meetings of women, it's kneel and humbly ask her husband's permission. This allows him to leave. This is necessary, despite the economic independence of women. Its lower about the rights is important for the future of children. Vision of Senegalese culture, whom respect the man made it the spiritual guide and protector of all family.
