Chioma Akpotha, others take to the streets to march against violence on women
Chioma Akpotha, a veteran Nollywood actress, and others recently took to the streets to hold a march on violence against women.
The march, which appeared to be quite large, was planned with the sole objective of ending the abuse and molestation of women.
Due to the rising percentage of female victimization, the actress and her colleague, Rita Dominic, have joined forces to call for an end to all forms of gender-based violence.
Read the post she made on her IG;
“Very early this morning we marched to lend our voices to @warif_ng no tolerance fight against gender violence.
“An estimated 736 million women—nearly one in three—will be victims to sexual violence in their lifetime. Most violence against women is perpetrated by current or former intimate partners. In 2018, one in seven women experienced physical and/or sexual violence from an intimate partner or husband in the previous 12 months alone.” – Sophia Michelen
This is a pandemic. Lend your support in whatever way you can to end violence against women and children. Thank you @warif_ng for continuously fighting and helping at risk women and children
