Liberian Women React To Rape Cases In The Country

Rape and Violence are one of the security issues affecting people especially females in Liberia.

It is becoming a common occurrence—an everyday thing. Barely a day passes in Liberia without the report of a case of violence against women, whether in a rural or an urban setting.

Women in Liberia experience a variety of forms of violence including sexual abuse and exploitation, rape, defilement (rape of a child).  

And yet — despite these alarming statistics — victims still struggle to be taken seriously. They are blamed for what happened to them. They are accused of lying. Convicted assailants still get minimal jail time or no jail time at all.

These overwhelming injustices have prompted many public figures as well as many supporters to voice out against the constant raping and killing of female children via their various social media handles.
