JUSTICE FOR RAPE.

The girls have failed to speak up

Those who did ended up regretting their actions.

The girls have lost their voices

The girls are being bullied.

*

Last week, Felicia was raped.

She told her uncle

The words that came out from an educated man sounded

like that of a man who had just drank to stupor.

He blamed her for wearing short dresses

He blamed her for not covering all the part of her body.

“Why are you always dressed that way?”

The most stupid question of the year.

Well, she is clamoring for justice.

*

Last month Vanessa was raped,

She told her mum.

Cover your mouth

Said her mother

Wipe your tears because no one must hear about this.

This is so shameful that the mouth must not speak.

“My daughter, don’t worry

God will fight for you”

Were the words of her scared mum.

Vanessa has decided to play dumb

So she won’t spill out the beans mistakenly.

*

Two days ago,

Robbers visited the house of the opulent chief Jaja.

They demanded that the family gathered

Vivian, his daughter decided to sleep

With a short silk dress.

She was raped.

The words of her dad were

I don’t want this to get to the world

You know I am a public figure

Bloggers must not hear of this

Today, Vivian is dead

Of course, depression caused it.

*

Rape is not a wrong

It is a crime

It is despicable

Stop shaming the victims!

Stop blaming the daughters!

Train the sons

Rebuke the fathers and uncles

Disgrace the pastors and neighbours

*

The scars may not be visible

But they are in the inner chamber of the mind.

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere – Dr Martin Luther King Jr.

*

Girls can’t dress the way they like

Because if they are raped they will be blamed

The only cause of rape is THE RAPIST

And the most foolish question is

What were you wearing?

Short skirts don’t rape, rapists do.

Don’t let the girls become cowards.

    Yes, men too get raped. Nowadays, we hear different cases on women who were raped. It is unfair. Not just women, girls too.
    Yes, it is a worldwide issue. That was why the quote was included. ❤Thanks for your comment.

    You are so right! Well, in my country, I have never heard of justice for rape victims. A sixteen year old teen was raped and the rapist was asked to pay just ten thousand naira! That money is just for braiding hair. It is a shame!

    This is soo true. If any rape incident happens,the question asked is “what did she wear”, “at what time was she outside”. I’m so tired of hearing this,don’t we have the right to wear anything again. What about the minors who don’t wear exposing clothes,do they deserve to be raped too. This really needs to stop. Nice one DewağŸ¤žğŸ¾â¤
