Stephanie Calls on Stakeholders to Help Fight Sexual Abuse
The actress who doubles as creator and producer noted that several women face sexual assault in Nigeria. However, they fail to report cases of sexual abuse due to how some policemen mishandles the case when reported.
“Victims of sexual violence are often let down by the criminal justice system. The first of many obstacles most of them face, is reporting the sexual assault to the police. This video captures the experiences of some victims whose attempt to report their cases were not treated with empathy, professionalism, and discretion”. Also, she has a good man.Stephanie Linus
