Current criminalisation (in majority of African countries) of sex work means #sexworkers are on the front-line of #GBV in that the perpetrator knows they are unlikely to report it, and that they are vulnerable and unprotected.

#EndGBV #accesstoredress #16days #dignityatwork
In the context of #MeToo: sex workers face judgement, stigma, blatant systematic discrimination. In media, they’re punished 4 their nonconforming sexuality by being criminalized/slut-shamed.

In the wake of the rape at the court, even after the case file was admitted to have been lost on two occasions, reputable organization have started expressing their condemnation of the obvious reinforcement of the rape culture in our society. Read this:
“We at Gender Mobile have taken cognisance of the decision of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory which sat in Bwari on Busola Dakolo's case against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo and we condemn in strong terms the totality of the court’s decision.
The court's refusal to assume jurisdiction on the matter is a monumental concern to the future of our judiciary. Further to this is the award of 1million naira against Busola which is a decision capable of institutionalizing the culture of silence.

@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice #Refugee women have different backgrounds including different personal qualities, family situations, levels of education and professions. Refugee women do not form a homogenous group, and they definitely should not be seen as uninformed #victims.
