It seems the issue of rape still holds in the air after Comedian Waris made a funny tweet about Sarkodie's daughter Titi saying, "the 2year old girl is getting ripe and will soon be chopped".

Even though the comedian has come to apologize but seems it hasn't been enough to erase the mark left in the heart of our dear feminists.

Actress Lydia Forson is still hitting hard on the issue of rape saying, we can't fight it without fighting the mindset that enables it.

Of course, the sound of a fired gun won't be heard until a trigger is pulled, same as we cant eradicate the issue of Rape without getting away of the mindset that enables it.

According to the actress, there is a reason why a man will feel entitled to a woman's body and it's in how they are socialised through the kind of music they listen to, movies they watch and even jokes they make.

She had preached on her twitter page: "We cannot fight against RAPE without fighting the mindset that enables it.

There’s a reason why a man feels entitled to a woman’s body; it’s in how we’re socialised through the music we listen to, movies we watch and even jokes we make. It’s much deeper than we think. Smh".

Each time you trivialise rape you give power to rapist; you may swear it’s not your intention, but that doesn’t change how people receive it.— Miss Forson (@lydiaforson) December 4, 2018


You can save 20 child brides from predators; but that won’t stop the 100 more waiting to be married of unless the perpetrators understand this is wrong.— Miss Forson (@lydiaforson) December 4, 2018


All these people who have the most to say about how women fight against sexual harassment have NEVER contributed to the fight in anyway.How are you going to tell someone how to fight a battle you’re unwilling to join??— Miss Forson (@lydiaforson) December 4, 2018


Meanwhile, one day when your daughters or even sons are under threat, because you inadvertently enabled RAPIST, you’ll want these same “over sensitive “ women to fight on their behalf.We’ll tell them how you FAILED them!!— Miss Forson (@lydiaforson) December 4, 2018
