Empowering women to access justice
Wunmi Mosaku – star of BBC hit drama Luther - travelled to Ghana with ActionAid to meet with women and girls who have survived violence, and who are calling for better access to justice.
Read how Wunmi met the women leading Community Anti-Violence Teams called COMBAT squads who work within their communities to raise awareness about ending violence and support survivors.
