And It’s Effects On Nigerian Women”
COVID-19 and The Virus of Domestic Violence Against Women is a podcast series made possible by the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung, which examines how the coronavirus pandemic is affecting sexual and domestic violence against women in Nigeria, West Africa.
In six episodes, listeners will hear from victims of domestic violence, advocacy workers and the people using the Internet to form support groups for victims of domestic abuse.
Episode 4 commemorates the UN International Widows Day, with a special focus on how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting Nigeria’s widows. The Global Fund for Widows has called COVID-19 “a widow-making machine,” as scientific evidence shows that more men than women are dying of the virus.
