Peace Vigil for late Grace Ushang

In London working. If you are in Nigeria and Lagos in particular, please go to this….

Dear All,

In the spirit of solidarity and support for the family of late Grace Ushang -(the Youth Corper raped and killed while properly dressed in her NYSC uniform in Maiduguri, Borno State) the Nigerian Feminist Forum (NFF) is organising a peace vigil and a march to speak up and speak out against violence against women and the indecent dressing bill.

I urge you all to attend this event to show your support for the cause and your belief in the fact that NO INDIVIDUAL HAS THE EXCUSE TO RAPE A WOMAN ON ACCOUNT OF HER DRESSING.

Venue: Agindingbi Senior Grammar, Agindingbi off Lateef Jakande Road, Ikeja Lagos

Time: 2pm prompt
Date: Friday, 4th December, 2009

Dress Code: Black
Also come along with a candle stick
Bring family, friends and loved ones

I thank you all and look forward to marching with my sisters and brothers in solidarity.

Amy Oyekunle
Executive Director, KIND

This is really sad.Sometimes i think the government should just scrap this NYSC business if they cant protect the youths.Sending them to an early grave in these crazy communities makes no sense.May her soul rest in peace.

Hi Funmi,
Its a commendable job that you are doing in Lagos, Nigeria to empower and liberate the women folk from restraints and miseries in the 21st century. I support you in your mission.
Thanks and wish you luck
