Actress cum women and children advocate Juliet Ibrahim has added her voice to the fight against domestic violence against women.
According to the actress, domestic violence against women is becoming common in the world and the only way to help fight against it, is to speak up before more women become victim to this vice.
She further warned celebrities who make mockery of this vice on social media or ridicule others in such situations.
“Our value as women has been taken for granted due to domestic violence, egoism and male chauvinism. Never joke about domestic violence.
“Violence is never a choice anyone should make!! ‘Why Didn’t You Just Leave?’ A question we are all quick to ask but we should never be the judge until we hear Domestic Violence Survivors Explain Why It’s Never That Simple!!! 80% of women experience violence in relationships around the world and its growing rapidly
“We need to speak up and lend our voices as much as we can to encourage these victims to speak up early enough to avoid a nasty outcome; keeping quiet and thinking that He/She will change is not the solution! Also
“When a gun is present in a domestic violence situation, it increases the risk of homicide for women by 500 percent. #domesticviolence shame unto every so-called celebrity that is actually tweeting and snapping while mocking anything concerning another woman’s wellbeing that is out there in the news… don’t forget Karma is a real bitch; be careful what you wish for” she said in her post on Instagram.
