For Aicha Yatabari, author of Haute-Vienne, culture is an excellent remedy for women’s emancipation.

Aicha Yatabari is an icon despite herself. Perhaps he inherited the Avant-Garde character from the Sudanese Sira Diop (1929-2013), who became famous in West Africa. The latter opposed the annual sacrifice of the most beautiful young women in a tribal village in Burkina Faso. A coup that ended the ceremony and made the young woman one of the first feminist activists.

This story, true or false, Aicha Yatabari, from her first writing, has been regarded as a feminist by her fellow citizens. “Women in Mali are afraid of being identified as feminists and unable to find a husband. Marriage is still very rooted in society, it is a consequence for Malian women. A

The fact of the matter is that Aicha Yatabari has given herself a mission from a very young age, to change the established order and to improve what can happen. “I like to observe Malian society. One day, I decided to make a novel out of it. A

Born in Burkina Faso, raised in C ডিte d’Ivoire before going to study medicine in Mali, Aicha Yatabari, thanks to her arrival and departure, has sharpened her gaze on African society, which she seeks to replicate in her novels and daily struggles. “One day, I was instructed to write about strong women with a broken life.”

After specializing in public health at the University of Ax-Marseille, Aicha returned to Mali where she practiced as a doctor for several years, before leaving the country for personal reasons which she did not want to disclose.
France, which he knows very well that he often spent his vacations there as a child, this France was internally connected with his family and cultural history, he will settle there in 2018, limousine, penile, a child under his hand, another will come.

Despite the significant commercial success of his first novel, Big jumpWritten at the age of 18 and published seven years later, Aicha has to start all over again.

Unable to verify the equivalence of his Malian diploma in France, he fell behind in public health counseling, founded in 2021 by Limoges Amethyst, a public relations and communications consulting firm. While collecting and feeding a page of literary news on his social networks. “I had to transform my galley into positivity, the only way out was to stay in this abyss,” he says politely, but without restraint.

A committed pen

The woman of the letter and the woman of science, Aicha Yatabari, impressed by the perseverance of her career and the breadth of her mind, expressed through her multiple promises. “I started writing my first novel at the age of 18 and it was already about polygamy. It’s thanks to my high school chemistry teacher that I got started. In high school, she took part in a short story competition for us and encouraged me to continue writing. A

Apart from his Olympian calm, what is interesting about him is the humility with which he looks back at his literary success, which surprises himself. “I am not here to receive rewards, I am here to share emotions. I write as I think. A

And what she thinks, she draws from her subtle observations about African society, where women are often caught up in the desire for liberation and archeology, even in traditional fetishism. Whether in her fiction or in her work as a doctor, Aicha Yatabari fights body attacks (during her studies at Bamako, she is committed, in partnership with WHO, against the practice of piercing) and in the hearts of women.

Polygamy is one of them. He did not live the stories he told, but he saw and heard so many of them that he weaved an intriguing portrait of them.

“Ali and Hour’s wedding day has come. First wife Fatu has to participate in the festival. She must show a wide smile to show her joy in welcoming her “little sister”, Awa, which is confirmed by the guests of the ceremony. Beware of her if she shows the slightest sign of jealousy ?! A

In this quote from Banquet of singers, The pain of the first wife, replaced and downgraded into the oven by a short second, must remain silent. By the ability and compulsion to move aside for the convenience of the family home, the woman is inhumane, perished. A psychological (and physical) violence that also enters children. “Polygamy is often the cause of crime among young people in Africa. A

This feminist struggle is the organization of Femmes Santé Solidarité Internationale, created in 2016 by Aïcha Yatabary. The association, which is nominated for the African Literary Prize Prix de la Plum, is open to writers for the first time, and its first edition, in 2021, focuses on violence against women and the theme: “Women together” ?!

A pride for Aicha, who thus contributed to liberating African youth from their speech and discussing issues that were hitherto forbidden. “African society is ready to develop some aspects. The liberation of women will go through the development of their professional perfection and their full potential. Which does not mean that I am against the institution of marriage. A

Aicha Yatabari, an African woman and a French woman, is “trying to build a bridge between France and Africa. We must enrich our African culture, inspired by others.”
