The recent spate of r*pe cases in the country has become alarming leading many to wonder how best to protect their children especially the girl-child from this epidemic monster. Therefore, base on her wealth of experience as a mother and mentor, veteran Nollywood actress, Gloria Anozie Young is set to take the epidemic monster ‘r*pe’ by the horn by educating young female students on how well to protect themselves.
The Nollywood veteran would serve as a guest speaker at a High Schools’ Anti Rape Conference designed for secondary school students.
The conference is organized by African Pride Empowerment Empire.
President of African Pride Empowerment Empire, Godwin Uwagbale in a statement said the purpose of the event is to help Nigerian teenage students gain awareness of rape and s*xual violence in the society.
He said: “It is so sad that the increase of rape cases in recent times is becoming too alarming and the earlier we fight this epidemic the better for our children especially the girl-child.
“Rape means an unlawful intercourse, which is carried out by a man with a woman without her valid consent. Rape outrages a woman’s modesty, after a woman is raped; she lives a pathetic life, which includes fear, depression, suicidal action and social stigma.
“After putting myself under such shoes, I felt this is not what any female folk should experience at all, hence African Pride Empowerment Empire, decided make a responsibility to campaign against ‘rape’ in our community and the nation at large.
“We have been able to employ the services of seasoned feminist and a rape victim that will be speaking on that day for the benefit of the students. Our guest speaker is a notable NollyWood actress, that’s the person of Gloria Anozie-Young (Mrs.). The reason we decided to have her as our guest speaker is because of her experience as a mother and a mentor that young female students can look up to for counseling and proper guidance.
We know that her presence, will not only put smiles on the faces of these youngsters, but it will also add generational value to their lives.”
This event will take place at Alimosho
