The Ministry of Social Services and Urban Development along with the University of The Bahamas (UB) held a seminar on the topic of marital rape on Thursday evening.

Prior to the start of the event ZNS News spoke to Chadwick James of the Department of Gender and Family Affairs’ Male Desk who previewed the event. He said, “the university has produced some speakers and they shared a little about the marital rape. They were just perfect. So I can imagine the more seasoned folk tonight. They will be from the clergy, it will be from the Gender Affairs. It will be those ones who from the law. They’re putting together good stuff, this is going to be excellent.”

In September 2022 the Ministry of Social Service and Urban Development held a marital rape symposium for stakeholders including the Attorney General, members of the clergy and representatives of various women’s organizations at the Breezes resort.
