For #16DaysofActivism, Nigerian journalist @adebola_x shares some of the real-life experiences of #gbv for women in Nigeria. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“My neighbour sexually abused me when I was 5. My mental health was damaged for a very long time. I was socially awkward and bitter. I think I had sexual relations with another child before I clocked 13. I'm making a conscious effort to get better. It can only get better, I guess. – Survivor, 25. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Speaking up against abuse is a frightening but brave thing to do. Only by speaking up can we raise awareness and ensure that survivors of gender-based violence can get the help they need. #HearMeToo ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
