“Women have to speak out as a way of fighting Gender Based Violence prevalence. If victims expose the offenders, then justice will prevail. When everybody is against a vice, definitely the number of criminals will reduce.” Cliff Owuor, Senior Coach of APR Basketball Team.

“Most women are brought up with the mentality that men are superior and should be respected regardless of their shortcomings. Someone with such a belief cannot speak out when they are being abused. Women should be encouraged to speak out against abuse through sensitizing them about their rights at home.” Josephine Sibomana,
National Women Council Representative, Kigali.

“Not exposing an abuser is an act of ignorance. Educated women and several institutions have to interact with the women at the grassroots to instill independence. They will speak out if they are abused once they overcome this fear.” Clemence Uwambaye, Secretary at
the National Women Council.

“Women will definitely speak out if the consequences of keeping silent are exposed such as; death, physical and emotional damage.” Ndjoli Kayitankole a.k.a Kanyombya, Comedian and Radio Presenter at City Radio FM.
