To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the 16 days of activism against Gender-based violence, UNFPA Nigeria premiered the “Hey Woman” drama series by Stephanie Linus in Abuja.
During the launch, Dr. Natalia Kanem, the UN-Under Secretary General, encouraged victims of Sexual and Gender-based Violence (SGBV) to do away with shyness and speak up over their experiences to demand justice.
