The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an annual international campaign, the International Day for the elimination of violence against Women, runs until 10 December, Human Rights Day.

The Governor’s wife stated emphatically that it is a serious crime for women to hide the activities of rapists, paedophiles and other abusers, no matter who is involved and place in the society.

Young Children across the state have suffered one form of abuse or the other, girls especially fall under these attacks.

Some even by male relatives, and others by the society.

The moral decadence of our society has fallen so low that it calls for raising of Alarm.

“Everyone must be willing to influence behaviour change, and this can be achieved through small but connected efforts.

Everyone must influence their inner circle to respect women’s rights before they try to influence total strangers.

Men can become part of the solution through mentoring younger boys to respect women’s rights and taking part in unpaid care work in the homes.
Young people must share knowledge on gender equality with peers in their communities and social media circles. Young people should be part of support networks, movements and community initiatives that thrive in advancing social justice and gender equality.
They should harness the power of numbers. Networking offers limitless opportunities for young people.
