The term safe space also refers to places intended to be free from prejudice, conflict, or potentially threatening actions, ideas, or conversations.

The minister therefore said that safe spaces would enable GBV survivors to heal quickly.

According to her, it will also give them hope and allow them to gain skills that will position them to be officially independent.

She said that “we stand in solidarity with survivors of gender-based violence, it is up to us to encourage and support them.

“It is also important to give them hope and give them the strength that all hope is not lost. We have safe spaces here in Abuja.

“We are calling on all state governors and first ladies of states to ensure they have safe spaces for survivors of gender-based violence.

“This safe space is a place where an abused woman or girl can run and be safe.

“And while he’s there, he gets training in income-generating activities so he can be supported and empowered,” Tallen said.

Federal Government

He reaffirmed the commitment of the Federal Government to guarantee that all cases of gender-based violence are treated with confidentiality and that justice is done adequately.

He said that the next 16 global days of activism against gender-based violence, held annually between November 25 and December 10, would be celebrated across the country with the desired seriousness geared toward showing support for survivors.

She added, “I emphasized to all commissioners that this year’s 16 Days of Activism Against GBV must be implemented in all seriousness and we all wore orange on those days.

“Orange is a bright color and it’s a color of hope and it’s a color that gives us strength to encourage and show that we stand in solidarity with survivors of gender-based violence.”
