We Must Protest this Injustice!

Recent events in Nigeria have revealed a seemingly silent ‘epidemic’ – Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV). SGBV appears silent as survivors find it difficult to speak up for varying reasons including fear, threat, backlash, and attack on their person.

As a society, it’s our duty to rise to the defence of survivors. However, a certain section of the society engages in ‘victim-blaming’ by raising absurd irrelevant issues like how the survivor dressed. Rape, sexual assault & harassment are never the faults of the survivor, the only person guilty is the perpetrator.
