Is the Bible fueling SGBV?


‘Man strangles wife over sex’; ‘Husband butchers wife over denied sex’; ‘Anal or No Sex  ….Husband Demands’ and other headlines like these capture the horrendous instances of sexual violence, a form of Gender-Based Violence (GBV) in Ghanaian homes over the years.

As defined by the United Nations, sexual violence “is any sexual act, attempt to obtain a sexual act, unwanted sexual comments, advances or acts to traffic or otherwise directed against a person’s sexuality using coercion by any person regardless of their relationship to the victim in any setting.”
