This comes at a time when cases of violence against women are on the rise in the country with the latest victim being Ivy Wangechi who was a sixth-year medical student at Moi University.

“We need more women to stand up against gender-based violence like the way Emma has done. It is time women stood up for themselves because cases of violence against women are running out of hand and the government is not doing anything about it,” Caroline Wairimu a third-year student at Moi University stated.

Emmalin Karanja was not available to comment, but from the replies to her Facebook posts, she seemed to be humbled by the response to her campaign.
