    In Mercy’s story,gender inequality has been a major contributing factor in VAW since she was a child.We find that ,girls are not allowed to play and instead are supposed to help with house chores.After completion of primary school instead of continuing with their studies,they are trained at home on how to become good mothers,keep their homes and look after their husbands.Women have limited access to resources and this makes it difficult for Mercy to give Angel a proper education and a good life that she wished for her daughter but instead takes her to a training facility to learn to be a good wife and properly take care of her home.
