Marion, who is a top 15 finalist of the Supreme Queen Global Earth Africa Pageant, believes that more people should unite to stand against GBV during the 16 Days of Activism and beyond:

“Uniting as one voice makes the sound louder for our nation, not just during the 16 days but all year round.
“Women should unite. We are not being heard. Our justice system is failing us and turning a blind eye to a world crisis.
