THANK YOU CHRIS!!! Link below is my protest poem, albeit a light weight one,
I wrote about this in September. I work with two women from Nigeria, and we talked about the mindset of the people and the consequences for the women and children who are ofen still treated as chattel.
Yes, everyone needs to speak out, as the problem is deeply rooted in some parts of Nigeria. Enoh and Ini say the worst area is in the northern part of the country, and I guess there are many women and men who are fighting to stop this archaic tradition, which is deeply imbedded into the local laws. Thanks for sharing this update.
And I've been an AI supporter for so many causes in different countries I've lost count.
Letter writing has paid off more than once, and when 'prosecutors/persecutors' know the world is watching and willing to intervene, the results can be amazing.
