If you have never spoken up against raping of our women, you are guilty. If you are speaking but not acting, you are guilty. If you so feel you are not concerned because it’s against women mostly, you are guilty. If you know someone who engages in the act of abusing women yet you are covering them, you are guilty.
One in every three women has been raped or abused in some other way – most often by someone she knows, including her neighbour or another male family member. One of the ways to help fight this evil is to speak up against #Rape and speak up about your experience which we strongly believe will help other victims get over the experience.
Men must lead the fight
The society has made it more like the fight against rape and sexual abuse against women should have women at the front, but no, it should begin with the men. Women are not being raped by fellow women, but majorly by men who sees women as nothing but sex objects meant to satisfy their sexual urge.
Men must stand up and lead the fight against women, that is not something to think twice about but it’s a show of support and a warm acknowledgement that the men can end this evil being perpetuate by their fellow men. Men must lead the fight.
We must take a stand
The campaign against rape is a fight we all must engage with. It’s not one that should be left to a set or few in the society. Our government, religious leaders, business leaders and everyone in the society must find a voice to speak again this evil against women that is eating deep into our society.
We must fight
Gender-based violence is one of the most pervasive and yet least-recognized human rights abuses in the world.
This violence leaves survivors with long-term psychological and physical trauma; tears away at the social fabric of communities; and is used with terrifying effect in conflict settings, with women as the main target.
