The sixth edition of the much awaited walk against rape campaign was held on Thursday, March 10th  in support of the ongoing fight against Rape in the country and in commemoration of  the International Women's day . Celebrities such as; Wunmi Obe, Susan Peters, Dayo Amusa, Tayo Odueke, Niniola, Koker, and Pryse joined several concerned Nigerians  from different sector of the society to create awareness and encourage victims to speak up. The walk which is aimed at creating awareness and lending  a voice to sexually abused persons (particularly women and children) in the society was a huge success as people came out enmasse to participate.

According to the  National Coordinator, Esther Ijewere- Kalejaiye ; The aim is to help in encouraging victims to speak out and reduce the stigmatization attached to the victims of  rape, also to demand for the creation of more helpcenters across the state.

The walk started from the Archbishop Vining Memorial church (AVMC) ground and ended at the Ministry of Women Affairs, Alausa, Ikeja, where the group was received by the commissioner of the ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Mrs. Lola Akande.
