An hour ago, Nollywood Yoruba actress and mama of two, Biodun Okeowo took to social media to lend her voice on the trending issue of rape in our society.
”Rape is one of the most terrible crimes on earth and it happens every few minutes. The problem with groups who deal with rape is that they try to educate women about how to defend themselves. What really needs to be done is teaching men not to rape. Go to the source and start there.
Now, should we treat women as independent agents, responsible for themselves? Of course. But being responsible has nothing to do with being raped. Women shouldn’t get raped because they were drinking or took drugs. Women do not get raped because they weren’t careful enough. Women get raped because someone raped them. When you see a vulnerable woman, help her don’t rape her.”
