In conclusion, the funeral rite of Maa Adwoa is a reminder of the devastating impact of gender-based violence and the urgent need for justice and accountability. It’s time for society to take a firm stance against gender-based violence, hold perpetrators accountable, and provide support to survivors and victims’ families.
