A letter to Government Officials in Cameroon
Dear Parliamentarians, Senators, Ministers of government,
We believe that violence against women is INTOLERABLE. And yet a campaign to enforce an ambiguous law on decency has been launched, which has given rise to incessant complains of all types of violence on women carried out by officers enforcing the 'DRESS CODE' as per Section 263 of the Cameroon Penal Code.
The 'DRESS CODE' law which prohibits indecency is an ambiguous law that fails to define the problem it seeks to resolve and the enforcement mechanisms. We believe that all persons have the right to decide what to wear, and a right to exist without fear.
