Benin's 'Woman King' in Movies, Real Life
电影中的贝宁“女王”,现实生活
 

The Woman King is an African story told in the form of a Hollywood historical movie.
《女国王》是一部以好莱坞历史电影的形式讲述的非洲故事。
 
The movie has won praise for its acting, directing, and for dealing with the idea of female political power. In the movie, women, led by General Nanisca, fight a war that men cannot.
这部电影因其表演、导演和处理女性政治权力的想法而赢得赞誉。在电影中,女性在纳尼斯卡将军的带领下,进行了一场男性无能为力的战争。
 
The film takes place in the 1800s in the Kingdom of Dahomey. Today the same area is known as Abomey. The story about female warriors and General Nanisca has echoed over a long period of time in Abomey and in the rest of the country of Benin.
这部电影发生在 1800 年代的达荷美王国。今天,同一地区被称为阿波美。女战士与纳尼斯卡将军的故事在阿波美乃至贝宁全国久久回荡。
 
Nan Zognidi is the present-day queen mother of Abomey.
南佐格尼迪是阿波美当今的太后。
 
She said she teaches young people the same values that the female warriors did: Girls are equal to boys. Girls are as able and competent as boys.
她说她向年轻人传授与女战士相同的价值观:女孩与男孩平等。女孩和男孩一样有能力和能力。
 
"They have the same abilities and the same competencies as boys," she said.
“她们和男孩有同样的能力和能力,”她说。
 
Zognidi's position of queen mother is fully ceremonial. It helps bring foreign visitors to the area. But before she became queen mother, Zognidi was a women's rights activist.
佐格尼迪的太后之位完全是礼仪性的.它有助于将外国游客带到该地区。但在她成为太后之前,佐格尼迪是一名女权活动家。
 
Now, she runs a program to teach girls trades that support financial independence. She teaches the history and culture of Benin. She also teaches leadership to young people.
现在,她开展了一项计划,教女孩从事支持经济独立的行业。她教授贝宁的历史和文化。她还向年轻人教授领导力。
 
One of these young people is 13-year-old Pkadomi Sylvestre. She said the queen mother taught her how to work on political activities for women's empowerment.
其中一位年轻人是 13 岁的 Pkadomi Sylvestre。她说,太后教她如何从事政治活动以增强妇女权能。
 
In the city of Cotonou, a statue of one of Abomey's female warriors was first shown earlier this year.
今年早些时候,在科托努市,一座阿波美女战士的雕像首次亮相。
 
The United Nations has said Africa needs more of the examples set by the female warriors of Abomey. That statement comes from U.N. Women, an arm of the United Nations dedicated to female empowerment.
联合国表示,非洲需要更多阿波美女战士树立的榜样。该声明来自联合国妇女署,该机构是联合国致力于赋予女性权力的一个机构。
 
"Women who are involved in politics are not usually positively seen by society," said area U.N. adviser Soulef Guessoum. She noted that, in Africa, women make up 25 percent of the elected assembly. That number is less than the 30 percent target set by the U.N. in 1995. And it is below the 50 percent that many consider the final goal.
“参与政治的妇女通常不会被社会正面看待,”地区联合国顾问 Soulef Guessoum 说。 She noted that, in Africa, women make up 25 percent of the elected assembly.这个数字低于联合国在 1995 年设定的 30% 的目标,也低于许多人认为的最终目标 50%。
 
Marion Ogeto is a human rights lawyer who works with Equality Now, a non-profit group that advocates female empowerment. She said the female warriors of Abomey are inspiring.
Marion Ogeto 是一名人权律师,她与倡导女性赋权的非营利组织 Equality Now 合作。她说阿波美的女战士鼓舞人心。
 
"This community was way ahead of its time by advocating for an army that is all and only women," said Ogeto.
“这个社区提倡建立一支完全由女性组成的军队,远远领先于时代,”奥盖托说。
 
She added the story "shows you that they have a woman leader, a woman king, and then she's in a position where she's able to sit at the same table as the king as well as all the others and tell the king, 'This is not how we handle the situation…'"
她补充说,这个故事“向你展示了他们有一个女领袖,一个女国王,然后她就可以和国王以及其他所有人坐在同一张桌子上,并告诉国王,‘这是不是我们如何处理这种情况......'”
 
The queen mother, Zognidi, thinks the most important lesson Abomey's warriors teach is that "everything that men can do, women can do today. We can't say that women are weak, it is wrong."
太后佐格尼迪 (Zognidi) 认为,阿波美的战士们给我们上的最重要的一课是“男人能做的一切,今天的女人也能做。我们不能说女人软弱,这是错误的。”
 
Women, she said, are as strong as men.
女人,她说,和男人一样坚强。
