Ghanaian Actress, Juliet Ibrahim has joined several others to speak up against domestic violence.
The actress and mother whose 4-years old marriage to Kwadwo Safo Katanka ended in 2014 also slammed celebrities who mock their fellow celebs when they are abused in their marriage. She wrote;
“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 fate, 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 any thing concerning another woman’s well being that is out there in the news… don’t forget Karma is a real bitch; be careful what you wish for others.
#sayNotodomesticviolence Thank God there are authorities in place nowadays to do the needful and deal with these maniacs! Violence is not an excuse and should never be a choice no matter what!”
