Sexual violence is recognised as the most serious crime affecting women and girls in Nigeria. Despite the prevalence of the problem, there are limited facilities to help victims and the number of cases of sexual violence and rape that are reported and prosecuted are few, compared to the number of victims.
Attitudes and perceptions that question the morality of the victim and justify the actions of the perpetrator, have sustained a culture of victim blaming and stigma, ultimately silencing the victim.
The Her Story Our Story Nigeria campaign seeks to challenge the persistent cycle of sexual and gender-based violence in Nigeria.
