In recognition of International Women's  Day 2022, #BreakTheBias -  the O2G Women's Refuge, launched its campaign, 'Love is Not Abuse' in West Africa, Nigeria.  

We imagine but also proactively work towards a gender-equal world that is free of domestic violence as we contribute to raising awareness against abuse, stereotypes and inequalities.

O2G WOMEN'S REFUGE ON DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Domestic violence takes many forms and these include mental, emotional, sexual, physical and economic abuse and violence. 

In 2012, the National Crime and Safety Survey indicated that 31% of the national sample of women confessed to being victims of domestic violence. 

Some of the modern challenges of abuse that still exists in Nigeria includes Child marriage with over 35% of girls being married before their 18th birthday.  

O2G Women's Refuge is led by women supporting and empowering other women.
