Global Women Demand: #BringBackOurGirls

May 8, 2014

On April 14, 2014 armed militants from the terrorist group Boko Haram abducted over 200+ girls during a 5 hour-long attack on the Chibok Government Girls Secondary School, Borno State in Northern Nigeria. The kidnapped girls were between 15 to 18 and had registered to take their final year exams at the school following the mass closures of schools due to repeated attacks by Boko Haram in their region.

 

Public outcry from the families of the girls in Nigeria led to protests and the now popular social media campaign #BringBackOurGirls. The hashtag has had over 1 million mentions  since April 22nd.
