A Gender Activist and Principal of the Agogo Presbyterian Women’s College of Education, Dr Grace Adasi has called on the Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection to intervene in the case of the alleged fake pregnancy involving a woman who was kidnapped only to return without her baby.
This is due to the inconsistencies in the accounts of different parties after the victim was found.
She said the report released by the Police, which concluded that the victim was not pregnant within the period under review, intensified the stigmatization against women.
“I am very confused about what is going, am not very happy that the Western Regional Minister could come out and say something without waiting for the Security Experts to do their work and rather drawing a conclusion like this if the husbands know his wife was not pregnant and decides that they should do that then it brings in the gender dynamics. It takes us back to the issue that men suppress women. I pray the Gender Minister will intervene and bring her to Accra for more tests on her.”
