“The Chadian woman does not live, she survives.”

The conflicts and structural challenges that have predominated in Chad over the last 60 years are responsible for a serious deterioration in the living conditions of women. Chad has 18 million inhabitants, 52% of whom are women, and only 1 % of whom have access to education.

This Show is the story of a country, Chad, but also that of many other countries where the fundamental rights of women are denied by the government, society, the community, the family and even in the streets. It is these wise and determined women who are the main characters.

Their history goes beyond that of Chad and directly interests all peoples through the power of their story and the heroines they represent.
