Popular feminist advocacy group, Pepperdem Ministries has urged the Ghana Police Service to arrest popular comedienne, Afia Schwarzenegger.
This comes after the comedienne made some comments about popular media personality, Efia Odo.
In a Facebook post, the group wrote;
“In 2017, Afia Shwaznegar’s then-husband released nude and intimate footage of her on social media. That incident has been crucial to our advocacy for women. As a victim of sexual harassment, revenge porn, and sexist tropes, it is very unfortunate that Afia Shwazneger is threatening another woman with rape and by so doing, endorsing sexual violence against women as a corrective tool. Rape is not only illegal but absolutely wrong and socially reprehensible.Advertisement
This is disgusting, dangerous and completely unacceptable! This is another unfortunate example of the rape culture that is pervasive in our society and a tragic reminder that women can also be guilty of perpetuating same. That this incident happened as far back as February 29th without enough public condemnation is evident of how normalized corrective rape is. We hope the Ghana Police Service and her employers take action and hold her accountable.”
