So much is going on in the world right now. And I'm tired of starting sentences like this, but how can I be tired when some people have a worse fate? My fellow Nigerian women have been raped and killed with no repercussions to the rapist because of the rape culture in Nigeria.
In today's episode, I have the very smart and outspoken table-shaker, Omolara Oriya, an activist, human rights lawyer. We had a raw and authentic conversation about the rape culture in Nigeria, about the laws that not only excuse the rapists but also encourage them, all while leaving the victim bruised (sometimes dead) and guilty for the crime she did not actually commit.
Omolara answered so many questions that were asked in our Facebook group, and it was quite an experience picking her brain on this issue. If you'd like to connect with Omolara, here are the details: @OmolaraOriye on Instagram | @TheLaraOriye on Twitter | @AEInitiatives | Follow hashtag #StateOfEmergencyGBV | The Femme Law Collective | The Oriye Consultancy | The Superior Information on YouTube
Some of the resources Omolara mentioned for rape victims are WARIF and the Mirabel Center. We must annihilate rape and rape culture in Nigeria.
