 Millennia2025 Solidari-Femmes - Paule Scutenaire

Femmes en lutte contre la pauvreté et les associations qui les représentent
Créativité => Solidarité => Innovation => Action => Egalité

 

Paule Scutenaire et Christine Gonay
Union des Agricultrices wallonnes, Fédération wallonne de l'Agriculture, Gembloux

Extraits

 

Pour nous la précarité n'est pas seulement dans le domaine financier, c'est une forte incertitude, une situation où on n'est pas assuré de conserver son emploi, son exploitation agricole, son outil de travail, son agrément par rapport à des normes et de là, son revenu.

 

Nous sommes un groupe de personnes qui partageons des opinions, des valeurs. Ces valeurs du Groupe de soutien aux agriculteurs en difficulté, sont le respect, la solidarité, l'accueil sans préjugé, la confiance dans l'autre à pouvoir se sortir de cette situation difficile, la confidentialité. Nous avons besoin, en tant que bénévoles, de partager ces valeurs, c'est notre ciment. Elles s'inscrivent dans l'ensemble des missions de l'Union des Agricultrices wallonnes, dont Christine Gonay est la vice-présidente.

 

Ce n'est pas facile car la précarité reste un tabou dans le monde agricole. Les agricultrices bénévoles ont travaillé sur leurs a priori, leurs préjugés : la précarité, ce n'est pas l'affaire de fainéants, ni de mal organisés, ni de "il n'y a qu'à" : cela peut nous arriver à tous.

Christine Mahy
Secrétaire générale du Réseau wallon de lutte contre la pauvreté, Namur

 

Extraits

 

Au Réseau wallon, les gens viennent militer et ce sont des personnes qui connaissent la pauvreté, et beaucoup de femmes parmi ces personnes. Elles nous parlent de la pauvreté en disant que c'est une privation d'accès et d'usage à une série de richesses. Elles nous parlent de la pauvreté immatérielle, de pauvreté naturelle, de pauvreté relationnelle, d'un empêchement d'accès aux richesses privées, individuelles, au respect de la vie privée. [...]

 

Maintenant les femmes subissent une quintuple peine : la peine d'aller travailler et d'assumer son ménage, mais éventuellement de ne pas aller travailler, d'être chômeuse, en formation, de devoir aller négocier avec le CPAS, etc.

 

Il faut savoir qu'être dans la pauvreté et devoir avoir recours à toutes les débrouillardises, cela demande énormément de temps, d'énergie physique, d'énergie mentale, et donc cela use terriblement. [...]

 Millennia2025 Solidari-Femmes - Philippe Defeyt

Femmes en lutte contre la pauvreté et les associations qui les représentent
Créativité => Solidarité => Innovation => Action => Egalité

 

Philippe Defeyt
Economiste, Président du Centre Public de l'Action Sociale de Namur

 

Extraits :

 

La première manière de s'occuper des enfants pauvres, c'est de faire en sorte qu'on ne diminue pas les revenus de leurs parents. [...]

 

On n'a pas fini le combat à la fois social, politique et culturel sur la nécessité pour tout le monde et les femmes en particulier de garantir leur autonomie. Les femmes en précarité ont des difficultés à garantir leur autonomie parce qu'il leur est encore plus difficile que d'autres d'accéder à un emploi et encore plus à un emploi correctement payé. Elles sont plus que d'autres soumises à la volonté de partenaires qui souvent ne voient pas d'un bon œil qu'elles prennent leur élan. Il faut continuer ce combat, culturel, politique et social à la fois, pour vouloir et pour garantir l'autonomie des femmes et en particulier de celles qui connaissent des problèmes de précarité.

Eleanor Roosevelt 

 

 

 Eleanor Roosevelt

"Once more we are in a period of uncertainty, of danger, in which not only our own safety but that of all mankind is threatened. Once more we need the qualities that inspired the developement of the democratic way of livre. We need imagination and integrity, courage and a high heart. We need to fan the spark of conviction, which may again inspire the world as we did with our new idea of the dignity and the Worth of free men. But first we must learn to cast out fear. People who "view with alarm" never build anything". (p. 5). 

 

 

"In the following pages I have set down one woman's attempt to analyze what problems there are to be met, one citizen's approach to ways in which they may be met, and one human being's bold affirmation that, whith imagination, with courage, with faith in ourselves and our cause - the fundamental dignity of all mankind - wthey will be met". (p. 5).

 

" It was John Admas who said, "The American Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people."


I am stressing that it is the force of ideas rather than the impact of material things that made us a great nation. It is my conviction, too, that only the power of ideas, of enduring values, can keep us a great nation. For, where there is no vision the people perish." (p. 11-12).

 

"What causes this persistent blindness, this stubborn refusal to recognize the inexorable force of change in the world? I find it difficult to accept the fact that the descendants of men and women who created a brand-new society have grown resistant not only to change itself but even to accepting the fact that change exists. What inhibits so many of us from defining our problems clearly, and from seeking a solution that is suited to the structure of our modern world?" (p. 15).

 

"I have often wondered how many people over the age of, say, fifty, try to reconstruct their past in the light of today. Only by doing so can one form a sharp picture of a changing world, and of the changes one has had to make oneself, no matter how painfully or reluctantly, to adjust to that world." (p. 21).

 

"Why are we now afraid to change? How can we regain our sense of boldness in the face of danger, of imagination to create new solutions, of courage and high-heartedness in carrying them out?". (p. 21).

 

"In a sense, nearly all great civilizations that perished did so because they had crystallized, because they were incapable of adapting themselves to new conditions, new methods, new points of view. It is as though people would literrally rather die than change." (p. 21-22).

 

"For on our ability to meet the challenge depends the future of America, probably the future of the world. Is it to be The Waste Land or The Good Earth?". (p. 22).

Benazir Bhutto 

 

 Benazir Bhutto

"Few in this world are given the privilege to effect change in society, to bring the modern era to a country that had only the most basic infrastructure, to break down stereotypes about the role of women and ultimately to fige hope for change to millions who had no hope before." (p. xi)

After giving birth to her daughter while Prime Minister:

 

"I received thousands of messages of congratulations from all over the world. Heads of government and ordinary people wrote to me, sharing the joy. Especially for Young women it was a defining moment, proving a woman could work and have a baby in the highest and most challenging leadership positions.

 

The next day I was back on the job, reading government papers and signing government files. Only later did I learn that I was the only head of government in recorded history to actually give birth while in office. That's one less glass ceiling for women Prime Ministers in the future to have to break". (p. XV)

Eleanor Roosevelt 

 

 Eleanor Roosevelt "I live in real terror when I think we may be losing this generation. We have got to bring these young people into the active life of the community and make them feel that they are necessary."

"I feel a great responsibility to the youth who fought the war.... Everyone of us has a deep and solemn obligation to them which we should fulfill by giving all that we are capable of giving to the making of peace so they can feel that the maximum good has come from their sacrifice."

Nelson Mandela 

 

 Nelson Mandela

"Otherwise I remain cosmopolitan in my outlook; in my thoughts I am as free as a falcon.
 
The anchor of all my dreams is the collective wisdom of mankind as a whole. I am influenced more than ever before by the conviction that social equality is the only basis of human happiness... It is around these issues that my thougts resolve. They are centred on humans, the ideas for which they strive; on the new world that is emerging; the new generation that declares total war against all forms of cruelty, against any social order that upholds economic privilege for a minority and that condemns the mass of the population to poverty and disease, illiteracy and the host of evils that accompany a stratified society".
 
From a letter to Senator Douglas Lukhele in Swaziland, 1 August 1970.
 
Nelson Mandela, "Conversations with Myself",
London, Macmillan, 2010, p. 182-183.

Eleanor Roosevelt 

 

 Eleanor Roosevelt  

"I have come to see that nothing of what has happened to me, or to anyone, has value uness it is a preparation for what lies ahead. We face tue future fortified only with the lessons we have learned from the past. It is today that we ust create the world of the future. Spinoza, I think, pointed out that we ourselves can make experience valuable when, by imagination and reason, we turn it into foresight. It is that foresight we must acquire. In a very real sense, tomorrow is now."

 

Eleanor Roosevelt, "Tomorrow Is Now",

Foreword by William Jefferson Clinton, Introduction by Allida Black,

London, Penguin Classics, 1963 - 2012, p. 4.
