Olori Wuraola Zynab Ogunwusi, wife of the Ooni of Ife has launched her advocacy campaign – #1in3Africa.

“It is our God given right, not just to show empathy towards victims but to set forth action to help them find their voice. Silencing the abused is also a form of abuse. Men also have a crucial role to play in speaking out against violence. This awareness also includes demanding a change of the cultural and social stigmas that perpetuate the problem. Together, we can help those who need us. ”
– Her Majesty Wuraola Zynab Ogunwusi.
