Society has always downplayed female pedophilia for a very long time. But this is a severe issue. Boys are raped and abused every day, and it goes unreported; hence the number of women sexually abusing children is much higher than conviction rates.
Reasons for low conviction rates are cited as male victims particularly feel reluctant to come forward because they fear that their experience will not be viewed as ‘abuse’. They feel pressure to view their sexual encounters with women as a badge of honor.
Men Don’t Cry is a one-man stage theatre play that explores this issue from an African point of view.
This dramatic comedy piece fused with ancient African music is moving, touching, and entertaining at the same time while giving social insight on many African issues affecting African men living in the diaspora.
