Ghana's new gender minister Otiko Djaba is in hot water after she told school girls they wear short skirts to their own detriment as it can attract rapists.
Gender activists and Ghanaian citizens have called for Djaba to be resign, but the minister has only reiterated her position explains Accra-based journalist Nana Ama Agyemang Asante.
Asante says that the Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection stands by her comments following a week of backlash from the public.
However, no government officials have spoken out against her remarks.
There have been calls for the President to do something about her, but I'm not sure the President will act immediately.— Nana Ama Agyemang Asante, journalist
