Our message is clear and unequivocal; these crimes against women and girls must immediately cease”.
In pursuing the full potential of women and girls in our society, we want to thank the government for the amendment of the new penal code of June 1976 Chapter 14, section 14.70 , 14.71 the rape law, bringing into for the new rape law of 2006.
We believe this is an important first step in the right direction and raising awareness about rape and sexual assault while also giving amplified voice to the concerns of survivors and families across this country.
