THE TIME IS NOW: COLLECTIVE ACTION AGAINST CHILDHOOD SEXUAL VIOLENCE IN AFRICA

When I first started my career as an advocate for youth and adolescents’ sexual and reproductive health, I was confronted with the harsh truth that young adolescent girls had to endure abuse to get access to menstrual hygiene management products.

The painful reality of teenage girls having to transact sex for pads is one particular experience that has stuck with me ever since. It was even more depressing to learn that transactional sex was deeply ingrained in their culture, with community matriarchs and grandmothers supporting the scourge, demonstrating how pervasive child sexual abuse is engrained in society.

The Brave Movement launches two pivotal reports addressing statutes of limitation (SOL) across Latin America

In our dedication to ensuring that victims and survivors of childhood sexual violence receive the justice they are entitled to, the Brave Movement is proud to present two pivotal reports addressing the statutes of limitation (SOL) across Latin America.

The first report is a collaborative effort by the Global SOL Taskforce, involving CHILDGlobal and the Brave Movement alongside Fundación Derecho al Tiempo. This document provides a thorough legal evaluation and country-specific rankings, emphasizing the critical need to eliminate criminal statutes of limitations for Child Sexual Abuse in Latin America. It delivers insightful analysis of SOL reform efforts at local, national, and regional levels.
