Sex For Grades: Reactions To BBC Africa’s Documentary

Sexual harassment in academic institutions in West Africa has been an issue that surfaces in the public sphere every now, however, it is largely under-reported and swept under the carpet as quickly as it comes.

Recently, BBC Africa released an explosive documentary on sexual harassment in West Africa. After gathering dozens of testimonies, BBC Africa Eye sent undercover journalists posing as students inside the University of Lagos and the University of Ghana.

Female reporters were sexually harassed, propositioned and put under pressure by senior lecturers at the institutions – all the while wearing secret cameras.

Reporter Kiki Mordi, who knows first-hand how devastating sexual harassment can be, reveals what happens behind closed doors at some of the region’s most prestigious universities.

See some of the reactions below:
