Read message below.
Dear African woman,
The society and the government has refused to protect womanhood, our rights have the bottom of the pot; we are constantly shooed,and intimidated into silence but today I tell you to leave.
Leave today! Forget what religion and tradition says. You’re worth more than your marital status! What matters is your peace and joy and sanity!
It’s been international women’s day against violence, and I’m encouraging you to leave that toxic relationship, leave that violent marriage, speak up and live again.
