Kouyimoussou Virginia


The present article seeks to understand factors that promote the resilience of girls who are victims of educational inequalities in Brazzaville. The aim is to understand the factors that push some girls to persevere and not to drop out of school despite the socio-cultural difficulties and educational inequalities they encounter in their school career. The target population of this study is composed of girls who are still in high school (final year of senior secondary school), all sections combined. The quantitative method we adopted enabled us to identify the difficulties faced by these girls and to know how they manage to get by. The results obtained reveal that the factors favoring the girls' state of resilience are as follows: willingness, courage, the ability to overcome difficulties, motivation, perseverance in continuing their studies, and not letting themselves be overwhelmed by difficulties.
