Demonstrators take part in a protest organized by the Ministry of Women, Family and Children Affairs against gender based violence in Abidjan on December 4, 2021.

Hundreds of women marched in Abidjan on Saturday to protest violence against women and to demand punishment for rapists.

Under the slogan “Orange the world”, organised by the UN Women’s Generation Equality, women in Ivory Coast and around the world participated in different activities to call the attention and create awareness about the violence suffered by thousands of women and girls every day.

“Rape has to be punished and we are here to show that everybody has to be aware of the fact that when a woman says ‘no’ it’s no,” said Claude Kohon during the march.
