In SierraLeone, girls have taken over parliament in commemoration of the International Day of the Girl. Today’s event is a simulation of an actual parliamentary session where girls shed light on issues affecting them and raise their voices to proffer solutions.
A group of 400 adolescent girls between the ages of 13-19yrs sat in parliament and presented the views of girls in their districts, communities, clubs, and schools.
The girl parliamentarians deliberated on the implementation of the Amended Sexual Offences Act of 2019 and called on the President to sign the amended act into law.
