Girls are being harassed by guys frequently in the recent past.A friend of mine was a victim of sexual harassment and rape.a sad ordeal indeed.

This Lady was taking a walk when she met this gentleman who pretended he never knew where he was going to,according to him he was new in town.My friend decided to help him out.He said he was going to Kosala(a street in Kumba.) He never had even his transport fair,my friend paid for him.they took a bike to the said location,as they arrived a group of guys surrounded her and showed her a knife to stay silent or else they will kill her.

They collected her phone and the little cash she had,they told her to follow them and she deed.This guys took her to a house and asked her to remove her dress,the first one started having rough sex with her,she even pleaded that they should use a condom but they refused. The second took over,this lady could not bare the pain and she was so helpless,she cried and cried but the was no one to help.it was indeed a horrible adventure for her.She thought she was helping but it turn out to a night made for her.

In my opinion I think every woman needs a condom in her bag in case of such circumstances they can protect themselves.ladies should be aware of such guys,don't render help to the extent that uvare following the person to his destination avoid late nights,avoid dressing half naked.We need to sensitize girls on the ills of sexual harassment and rape.

The government should enact laws to punish rapist by giving them jail terms.

Dear Gisele,

Rape is a terrible act of violence. Victims of rape are going through pain and trauma. The thought of the incident sends them sobbing inside. How will an act of kindness result in an act of violence? This is so sad.

Thank you for sharing this story, dear Gisele.

Dear Gisele,

This happens all too often, and your story about your friend is especially infuriating as she was going out of her way to be kind. Ending all of this violence against women and girls is the reason I am so grateful for our coming together here on World Pulse. I am glad to know you are there. I hope your friend has survived and knows that many of us are trying to change this horrific violence. 

In sisterhood,

Tam
