LIBERIA: Artus Urges Halt To Ritualistic Killings, Violence Against Women

Liberian movie icon and UN Women Goodwill Ambassador Frank Artus is challenging Liberians to put an end to the growing wave of ritualistic killings and violence against women.

He described ritualistic killings and violence against women as inappropriate acts that must not be practiced by any well-meaning citizen.

Artus made the appeal Wednesday in an interview with journalists on the grounds of the Temple of Justice on Capitol Hill in Monrovia.

He disclosed that he had been invited by UN Women to help create awareness on violence against women not just in a particular category but in all forms and aspects in which such violence are perpetrated.

Artus Wednesday joined the Women in Peace-building Network (WIPNET) in a peaceful march that took them to several public institutions where they presented their grievances to heads of those institutions.

The women carrying placards with diverse inscriptions called for transparent justice and an end to ritualistic killings, and violence against women and children.

“Apart from joining these women and being invited by the UN Women, this is also a demonstration of my loyalty to country and a show of lamentation,” he added.
