    Girls are not supposed to play but help their mothers in the kitchen. Girls are not supposed to get higher education and also it is okay for women to be beaten by their husbands.

    Life for women like Mercy are exposed to vulnerable associated with economic abuse that leads to physical and affect even children when experience their mothers facing multiple abuse of all forms and impact on them too. Lack of education and harmful practices and punitive policies and unsupportive systems and structural inequalities leaves women voiceless because they lack information and skills to survive and this leads to child marriage, a vicious cycle that affect their children too and community practices reinforces such behaviours

    La desigualdad de género permite la violencia en la vida y la comunidad de Mercy
    Al permitir y normalizar un trato desigual entre hombres y mujeres, en el caso de Mercy reflejado con la reducción de oportunidades para estudiar y hacer realidad sus sueños para cumplir con las funciones de reproducción y cuidado que la sociedad le asigna y con la normalización de la violencia. Además, se otorga privilegios a los hombres que en la practica de masculinidades hegemónicas normalizan y replican acciones violentas contra la mujer.
    En mi vida la violencia empeora las desigualdades de género al reducir las oportunidades en mi familia y mi comunidad y normalizar acciones violentas

    In Mercy’s life and community, gender inequality enable violence in education where no girls could study up to secondary saying that school is not important for them due to the fact that they marry and bear children; in entertainment where no girls could do sports; in house duties where only girls could help their mother and take care of younger siblings.
    Violence worsens gender inequalities in Mercy’s life. She hopes her daughter will have different opportunities than she had but because they did not have enough money to send all of the children to school, Mercy believes that she must teach her daughter how to be a good wife and mother. Mercy did not be able to fight for her daughter attending the school like her brothers(dominant masculinity).
