Royal Woman Award (RWA) is a celebration of the woman, a recognition of the power, role and impact of women in our society and our world. It will also serve as a major advocacy platform to amplify the voice of women against Domestic violence, an issue plaguing women in Nigeria, Africa and all around the world.
Domestic violence is a hot button issue across the world. According to the National Demographic and Health Survey, domestic violence cuts across all socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. 28 per cent of all women, almost a third of all women in Nigeria, have experienced physical violence, a significant number in a country of almost 200 million, where almost half are women. These numbers are on the increase and devastating as they grow.
