Podcast | Why a group of men is fighting for women’s empowerment Ep. 2

Is a man who cooks for his wife submissive? Is a husband supposed to be “king of the house” or a caring partner? How far does a man have to go to prove his “manhood?”

In Burundi, husband Innocent came to the realisation that abusing and betraying his wife was ruining their lives.

They were already facing challenges as they were in the grips of poverty.

Innocent was preventing his wife Capitoline from not just being happy but from achieving her potential.

“When you do that, you hinder her development,” he said.

Innocent’s revelation turned his life upside down and for the better as he began to be part of the Abatangamuco.
