Celebrities Walk Against Rape Campaign is a special demonstration that will bring Nigerian Actors, Actresses, Sport Men, Media Practitioners, Musicians, DJs and Comedians to come together and lend a voice to sexually abused women in the society, taking them from a stage of self denial to self determination, self defeatism and under-achievement to self esteem and self achievement and showing their support to the course of bringing an abrupt end to RAPE in Nigeria where the number of rape cases is on the increase.
