“I have received subtle threats since this work was completed but I am not bothered because the BBC takes the security of employees seriously.
Before embarking on this project, the team prayed a lot and also sang because it helped to calm the nerves. But I had to go through the trainings I received over and over again because I wanted to get it right…

The biggest goal of this work was to be louder than the aggressor because sexual harassment is very loud. I wanted it to be silenced…

I am happy that a lot is changing already since the documentary was release and I can confirm to you that one of the lecturers at the University of Lagos caught sexually harassing a prospective student has been dismissed by the institution…

I believe it doesn’t stop there until there is a conviction. We have to break that culture of impunity.”
