Familiar Tears is a book about Gender Based Violence (GBV).
It involves any act of violence that results in, or is likely to result in physical, sexual, or psychological harm or suffering to women and girls, boys or men including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty whether occurring in private or public life.
Violence has many faces that and some are perceived as less harmful especially if psychological.
GBV directed to women and girls is one of the persistent violations of human rights across the globe.
Hoodwinked in the so called culture, it is at times perpetuated by familiar acquaintances, in very familiar territory, and familiar circumstances, thereby causing familiar tears.
This makes it a impossible nut to crack.
The authors, who are all Faculty from Universities in Africa have been compelled to bring forth its frequency and hidden face.
GBV reduces the bargaining power of victims and survivors as they grapple with its its so painful effect even as perpetrators; culture included, go on free.
The aim of the book is to shed light and galvanize action, speak loudly and clearly about the Familiar Tears, so painful and invisible.
Familiar Tears is about Gender Based Violence as perceived by African Scholars in Africa.
Its purpose is to speak out the unspoken very obvious forms of violence commonly perpetuated in familiar circumstances mostly by loved ones where trust is betrayed.
The authors are Faculty based in various institutions in Africa.
No to Gender Based Violence.
