Sylvia Chibuike Iwuchukwu recently presented her Thesis which was graded with an A for her Doctorate program in Gender and Development Studies. The Thesis was titled “ASSESSMENT OF THE IMPACTS OF COVID -19 LOCKDOWN ON SEXUAL VIOLENCE AGAINST THE ADOLESCENT CHILDREN TO ACCELERATE PREVENTION AND SPEAK-OUT CULTURE IN NIGERIA.” You can find an abstarct of her final thesis down below:

Abstract:
The study on the assessment of the impacts of COVID-19 lockdown on sexual violence against the adolescent children to accelerate prevention and speak-out culture in Ondo State was conducted to document 1.) the prevalence rate of all forms of sexual harassment against the adolescent children during the year 2020 COVID-19 lockdown exercise- 2.) identify barriers against speaking-out and seeking for justice- 3.) demystify who the perpetrators are to the survivors- 4.) evaluate the actions taken by the survivors; and 5.) evaluate the outcomes of the actions taken. Data collection methods used in the study were mixed methods which involved face-to-face interviews to ascertain responses from the service providers- Focused Group Discussion- and structured questionnaires administered to 291 secondary school students selected from six different schools to establish responses from participants. Information collected from these instruments was collated and analyzed with a table- simple percentage- mean score- and charts. The results showed that there is an information gap- as most of the respondents are not informed about their Rights to justice as per actions to take and the authorities to report to when sexually harassed- hence low speak out rate and high rate of unreported cases.

The objectives of this study are the compasses that guided the research and are presented below:
• To examine the prevalence of all forms of sexual violence against adolescents during COVID 19 lockdown
• To identify the factors that impede speak-out culture amongst the adolescent children
• To demystify who the perpetrators are to the survivors
• To evaluate the actions taken by sexual violence survivors
• To evaluate the outcomes of the actions taken by sexual violence survivors
