Popular Ghanaian actress Juliet Ibrahim has shared how she overcame domestic violence in previous relationships while giving advice on how to leave violent partners.
The beautiful actress and filmmaker shared profound insight into her personality as a fan and asked her for guidance on how to handle a domestic violence situation via an Instagram story conversation.
“Hello queen, pls what is your honest take on domestic violence? Stay and pray for change or walk away,” the fan asked.
In response, Ibrahim talked about how she had experienced domestic abuse and encouraged others to leave abusive relationships. She claimed that she struggled to escape the predicament, but not without a plan and outside assistance.
Juliet emphasized the significance of making an escape plan and talking to someone.
She answered by saying, “I told him what he did was raped and he said but we were in a relationship. But I was I ready that was the question, did I say I was in the mood?
I kept saying no, stop it, stop it, you pin me down and you’re doing whatever you wanted to do and you’re smiling saying don’t worry. And you’re kissing whist I am crying, that means you’re a rapist and I had to leave that relationship.
I fought my way out of that relationship because he even locked me up in his house for days until my sister Sonia came to find me. I was scared, uncertain of what to do because this guy was huge and taller than me he can raise you above the wall. And just imagine that it was every day.
You’re naive. Who do you go and tell? Who would come and fight for you? But ladies you can report it now, go and report. If your husband is forcing you to do when you’re not in the mood it is rape and I tell these men that you cannot force a woman,”she said.
