The report states that 63% of women and 28% of men agree that a husband is justified in beating his wife. This is, however, lower than the number from the same report in 2011, which found that two out of three women (or 68% of women surveyed), agreed that men were justified in their physical abuse towards their wives.
The report – released last week as part of CSA’s census under Ethiopian Demographic and Health Survey (EDHs) – was comprised of a nationally representative sample of 15,683 women ages 15-49, and 12,688 men ages 15-59 in 16,650 selected households.
According to indicators of the report, a husband is justified in beating his wife for at least one of the following reasons: if she burns food while cooking, if she argues with her husband, if she goes out without telling her husband, if she neglects their children, or if she refuses to have sex with her husband. “Both women and men are also most likely to agree that wife beating is justified if the wife neglects the children amounting to 48% and 19%, respectively”, states the 2016 report.~ For more go to our link! 👆🏾Tell us your story and be an inspiration to other habesha 🇪🇹 🇪🇷 women all over the 🌎! @habeshawomen

In today’s Eritrea, there is no difference between the jailer and the jailed. The political culture is so violent and desperate that the president’s own son attempted to escape the country.

President Isaias Afwerki’s erratic and mercurial temperament – he has been the head of a one-party dictatorship since independence in 1993 – has culminated in a profoundly dysfunctional nation. A “hit and run” style has replaced any thoughtful long-term planning. •

In the current Eritrean political landscape, officials are usually promoted to key posts only after being humiliated and pacified through an intricate web of control designed by Afwerki.

Queen Eleni was a Muslim princess daughter of ruler of Hadeya, who then had to marry Emperor Zara Yaqob and converted to Christian. She also took the role of a mother to Zara Yaqob’s son Baeda Maryam. She was known for her deep faith, her familiarity with books and the affairs of state. She became well versed in Christian theology, writing two religious tracts. She was so widely respected that rather than retiring after her husbands death she continued to exert political influence and patronage not only during that of Zara Yakob’s son Baeda Mariam, but also that of his eldest then his youngest grandsons.
She was honored for her foresee of the Christian state was in danger from the strategically important Muslim coastal neighbors. First she tried diplomacy when it failed she asked for alliance with the Christian Portuguese. She retired to her estate in Gojjam and died there in her 80s. When the news of her death reached the chaplain of Portuguese he wrote, “There was a great rumor and talk at the court about the death of Queen Eleni. They said that since she had died all of them have died, great and small, and that when she lived, all lived and were defended and protected; and she was the father and mother of all.”

Born in Afar region, Fatuma was a child who always loved to help others do their work. She moved to Addis Ababa to finish her high school education, then joined Care Ethiopia, but she was not happy at all that the projects she was implementing did not address what she viewed as the primary challenge for Afar society. Which led her to start her own project Rohi Weddu.
As a woman born and raised in Afar community, she knew at first hand the problems that Afar girls and women face as a result of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) - during the mutilation, at the start of the menstrual cycle, and when giving birth; she wanted to become an activist to eradicate FGM.
Fatuma began her campaign at the regional level, persuading regional authorities and regional religious leaders, including the all-male Islamic council, to join her effort to end the practice of FGM. In 8 out of the 16 woredas in which her organization work, as a result of her campaign, official declarations prohibiting FGM were approved and publicized.
She also wanted girls to be educated and began to focus her activism to getting them to school, working to persuade parents that sending their daughter to school benefited both the girls themselves and the community.
As a young Afar woman trying to bring change to a tradition-bound society, Fatuma faced inordinate challenges, from authorities to religious leaders accusing her of defying the rules of Islam, because she was a woman. “Women and girls have to be educated and self-sufficient. Education changes not only the individual, but also the community as a whole. Don’t give up easily; don’t let your emotions overwhelm your purpose or obstacles divert you from your chosen path. Live your life with integrity and elegance.”

Selome Tadesse was born and raised in Axum and moved to A.A. She attended an all-girls school at St. Mary. And went to study journalism at the University of Belorussia where she was wrongfully accused of anti-revolutionary activities by the Derg and had to move to Germany, where she led the life of an asylum-seeking refugee for 15 months. Selome then moved to, Massachusetts through a church refugee resettlement organization and enrolled at Mount Holyoke College, graduating in International Relations. Following graduation, she moved to the city of Boston and joined the Ethiopian Community Centre as a Refugee Program Coordinator. Then moved to DC, where she joined the Ethiopian Community Development Council (ECDC). After the fall of Derg she returned to Ethiopia and joined the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Soon after she was appointed as a Press Counselor and sent to Washington DC to help set-up an Ethiopian Embassy.
After six years she returned to Ethiopia and became the first women manager at Ethiopian Radio and Television Agency, introducing the popular investigative journalism show "Aynachin". She was also appointed to serve as the Government spokesperson during the Ethio-Eritrea border war that occurred in 1998. After ERTA, she found the Network of Ethiopian Women's Association (NEWA) – an umbrella organization for associations engaged in addressing issues of women's rights in Ethiopia - becoming its first Executive Director. After two years she went and founded Emerge Consultancy and Training PLC through which she has provided leadership training for many organizations. One of her projects there was the Yegna project, which she describes as a space that provides girls a voice.
Selome is also renowned for mobilizing masses in the "Ande Birr le Ande Wogen" campaign that managed to raise Birr 12 million in cash and in kind for Ethiopian victims of famine. Very recently, Selome took a huge step and risk in the direction of political leadership by enlisting herself as an independent candidate in the 2015 national elections. “My passion in life is excellence and creating impact. Whatever it is one is doing, don’t be mediocre at it."

Maria Munir was born in Merkato in A.A to a large family. She went to Nativity girls school. While pregnant with her second child her husband was killed by Derg. At the time Maria had been working for the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs in Addis as a Judge.
Maria was selected to join the Federal High Court and became a judge and served in civil and criminal bench. She and other women lawyers formed the Ethiopian Women Lawyers Association (EWLA). After she left her role as a Judge, she became an independent Lawyer and at EWLA provided free legal Aid for more than 8000 women.
She and four other women activists established what was then the Tsotawi Tikat Tekelakai Mahber (TTTM) and now Association for Women's Sanctuary and Development (AWSAD), the first safe house for abused women and children providing holistic services. To date, AWSAD has served around 3000 women and 1134 children.
The women and children are referred by the police, EWLA, women's affairs offices as well as the child-friendly courts one stop center Gandi Hospital, schools and other NGOs. All the women and many of the children are survivors of physical and/or sexual violence and they come from all Ethiopian regions.
In addition to providing shelter and safety from perpetrators AWSAD provides medical services and a linkage to hospitals for further treatment and psychosocial support for the survivors. Also offers different types of skills training. ✊🏾“My dream is for our work to expand to provide more services to more women, educate more communities and violence against women will diminish everywhere. We still have a long way to go for our women to realize full enjoyment of their rights- and we need to see men as our partners in that effort, not our enemies. Many men are supportive, and it is up to us as society and as parents to raise men who respect and value women. Here is what I want to say to women: Don’t ever give up or lose hope. Listen to yourselves to understand that success doesn’t come overnight. To reach your goal, you have to go up the ladder of success one step at a time.”
