November the 25th is set as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, by the UN and Nigerian women are speaking out on twitter to create awareness of the persistent violence women all over the world are exposed, for no other reason than the fact that they are women.
Even though the topic seems to be chooking some people’s body (maybe it’s guilty conscience).
Those Yaba guys don’t know shit about pc and twitter arguments. Don’t think you can change them it’s unrealistic. Adapt if you must.

How does a timeline full of stories of sexual harassment address the issues at hand? — Harry (@girlharry) November 25, 2016
We stand with these women and every other woman, who has been harrased, who were brave enough to share their stories.

One time I smacked this guy in Yaba with my umbrella for grabbing me. And then the guys were shouting at me. “You no dey fuck” The rage — Lade Tawak (@deaduramilade) November 24, 2016

And these men who are ready to take a stand to eliminate violence against women.
I’m happy people now talk more against several forms of abuse, such violations have been in existence and have been overlooked for too long. — Uduh Emeka (@UduhEmeka) November 25, 2016
The lust problem is deeply ingrained. We have failed our sisters. We have failed our mothers. We have failed our daughters.

You don’t need formal education to understand harassment, it isn’t rocket science https://t.co/IqLbpNgMq9
