NO TO HUSBAND BEATING WIVES – STELLA DAMASUS
For those men who wouldn’t stop the abuse of their wives and children, you must read this.
It’s a New Year which requires your New Year resolution to change old habits.
Popular Nollywood star Stella Damasus has always lent her voice in the struggle against women and child abuse. She has been kicking and she continued in that light this New Year with a passionate appeal against domestic violence.
Check what she said on IG:
“We are sick and tired of people telling us it’s okay for your husband to hit you just because he paid our bride price. We are sick and tired of the ignorance surrounding domestic violence in Africa. We are sick and tired of the law enforcement agencies in Africa telling us that it’s a domestic affair and should be resolved at home. We are sick and tired of mothers telling their daughters that it is okay to be beaten by their husbands because they ent through the same thing. Domestic violence is not a peculiar problem. It is universal. It has taklen too many lives and it must stop. #nomore domestic violence #nomore sexual assault #nomore silence @nomoreorg @sayno_unite @unwomenla @unitednations @unwomen
It’s time our men rethink. Domestic violence can’t continue. It can stop with our actions.
