Oluwaseun Ayodeji Osowobi Bite

"In Nigeria, there is a cultural belief that a girl must be a virgin to be considered pure, worthy, and innocent in the eyes of God. Unfortunately, this belief does not apply to men. If a girl experiences any form of violation, especially rape, she is considered unclean and loses the value placed on her virginity. This pressure to remain a virgin and the fear of being viewed as broken, damaged, or filthy can lead to victims of rape remaining silent about their experiences."
