REDOT IS A WOMAN RIGHT CAMPAIGN AGAINST GENDER BASED VIOLENCE. RAPE IS AN ENEMY OF DESTINY AND OTHERS JUST AS TERRIFYING

#RAPE #GANGRAPE

The manifold disadvantages and discrimination, poverty, exploitation and abused which continues to plague rural women in many parts of the world was an issue voiced by the president of Imperative Initiative for Motivation of Global Care IIMGC during her visit to  Zaria, where she met with women who are campaigning against Gender Based Violence- GBV.

The issue of rape in Nigeria has attracted the attention of not only human right activists, feminists from a Non-governmental organization here in Nigeria, but also from international Non-governmental organisations. This is due to the fact that, there are so many incidences and cases of rape occurring on almost daily basis and actions are yet to be taken to normalise the situation. Rape is a form of Gender Base Violence (GBV) against women, according to the Beijing declaration and platform for action, it defines violence against women as “any act of GBV that result in or is likely to result in, physical, sexual or psychological harm or suffering to women [and Girls], including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or private life. Among the forms of sexual violence against women, rape is the most prevalent and disturbing in Nigeria Although, there is no accurate data which will exactly tell us the rate of rape cases and incidence occurring in daily or annual bases in the country. Though, some Nigerian NGOs with the assistance of international NGOs have conducted researches with the aim of knowing the rate of rape cases and incidence that is occurring in the country and be able to educate the society of its effect in order to reduce it.
