Recall that in Nigeria, women and girls are vulnerable to physical, sexual or psychological abuse that cuts across lines of income, class, and culture. Empirical evidence shows that SGBV is a crime that has continued unabated at a very high rate in Nigeria as gender and women rights complaints constituted the most complaints, almost a quarter of the complaints to the National Human Rights Commission. Violence against women is expressed in many forms such as denial of economic and social rights, discrimination and exclusion from opportunities, and dehumanization. Specifically, SGBV include rape, sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, physical violence, forced/early marriage, domestic violence/neglect, harassment and security threats against women/girls amongst others.
