To be raped is one of the most horrifying experiences. Can sex for grades in universities be classified as rape? Just today, Med-zoneTV reported the story of Dorcas, a Med-zoner that hails from Lagos state, Nigeria, raped at age fourteen.
The society should not look at these incidents from only one angle. In Nigerian and African universities, cases of sexual harassment of female Students by male lecturers is on an increase. Medical students are not spared as this social decay have eaten deep into Medical School.
In the past, cases of sexual harassment or sexual pressure for good grades were very rare, it was undignifying and shameful to hear of such things either by the female students or male lecturers.
We all know it’s not an appluadable act and yet it continues to persist in our universities.
The question is why?
