The Ethiopian Government has announced that 100 girls have been raped and treated since the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic. Almaz Abraham, the head of Addis Ababa women, said, “One hundred and one girls were raped in the past two months after the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“The problem is that, unlike when schools were open, the attacks are not being exposed until the girls get pregnant. Maybe, there would be chances of stopping it from reaching to that stage if the girls were going to school.
“Men who used to practise different habits outside their homes are now doing them to their children when they stay at home”. This offence of rape is gradually becoming the latest virus every country needs to deal with. We all must join in the fight against rape culture
