Episode 56: Women’s Lives Matter

Episode 56: Women’s Lives Matter

Between May 2017 and June 2018, 47 Ugandan women have been found brutally murdered; having been kidnapped and sexually assaulted or raped. Only three suspects have been arrested in relation to these kidnappings and murders, and none of them has been convicted or jailed. The investigations have been slow, and as a result, Ugandan women have decided to protest against the slow response by the police on the 30th of June 2018. Today, we’re joined by Godiva Akullo, Deputy Director of Chapter Four Uganda and one of the conveners of the Women’s Protest Working Group. We talk about femicide, violence against women, and how we can support their protest. Press play!
