Autonomisation économique des femmes en Haïti : un défi à relever

A Haitian mother holds her newborn child close.

"Je pense à l'autre. Au traître. A la robe moulante que je mettrai ce jour-là. A mes talons aiguilles. Au rouge carmin dont je dessinerai mes lèvres et à cette chose que je dissimulerai dans mon sac."

"Dans cette île, dans cette ville, il faut être une pierre. Je suis une pierre." 

"J'ai devancé l'aurore et j'ai ouvert la porte sur la nuit."

 La prison des femmes à Pétion-Ville, une Haïti qui crie justice
Construite en 1997, la prison des femmes à Pétion-Ville est l’archétype des prisons haïtiennes. L’établissement compte plus de prévenues que de condamnées.

A Haitian woman is a woman who bake herself under the hot Caribbean sun, with a bucket on top of her head selling small packages of water at the Croix des Bossales market, to be able to send her children to school. Poor mother, her beauty has faded away by hard work. The reminder of her astonishing beauty is perhaps her smile.


A Haitian woman, is a woman whose feet are worn out, from walking 10s' of miles with a basket full of fruits and vegetables on top of her head, weighing hundreds of pounds; her voice has almost vanished from yelling out merchandise as she passes affluent neighborhoods. 

Haitian women are great entrepreneurs; they sell and make a profit out of everything they offer, no matter how small they may seem; from tiny cups of pistachios, to buckets of charcoal. In Haiti, women do it all.
They work for over 12 hours under hot light bulbs sewing clothes that they probably will never be able to afford. 

In Haiti, no matter what a woman is selling, how long she's been walking, how heavy her load might be, how hot the sun is or how tired she might be, she is always smiling.
Haitian women are not smiling because they enjoy the burden that miseries have bestowed upon them; they're smiling because even though all this hard work is probably not going to be enough to bring food on the table, but they will be able to save enough to give their children the education they did not receive.

You better not look down upon Haitian women.

Haitian women really can do it all.
