“The entirety of the life of a woman is spent navigating violence and if she gets raped along the way the question becomes what was she wearing.
Barakat in Ibadan was fully clothed in hijab from head to toe, you couldn’t see anything. She was raped in her father’s house. So that takes away the question of ‘what was she wearing, where did she go?’
So when you see women angry today, I think sometimes it’s actually from their realization that we take a lot of rubbish just because we have a breast and a vagina.”
Thank you, Chioma for coming hot and ready, with truth and life.
May we be better, as people and cultures.
Happy International day of the Girl Child.
