Time magazine has named a Nigerian women’s rights activist, Oluwaseun Ayodeji Osowobi, as one of its 53 women on a list of 100 names it dubbed “the world’s most ascendant leaders” who are “rising stars in their fields”.

Osowobi, who is also the Commonwealth Young Person of the Year 2019 won the title after helping thousands of sexual and domestic abuse victims in Nigeria, a statement by the commonwealth’s Assistant Communications Officer, Snober Abbasi said.

Osowobi, who is a survivor of sexual violence, set up the Stand to End Rape initiative to provide support to women, men and young people who have experienced any form of gender-based abuse.

Founded in 2014, her initiative works to advance women’s sexual reproductive health rights, advocate against gender-based violence and provide medical, legal and psychological support to survivors of sexual and domestic violence.

Layne Robinson, the Commonwealth’s Head of Social Policy Development, said: “We are happy our Commonwealth Person of the Year, Osowobi, is being recognised for her outstanding work beyond the Commonwealth.”

TIME magazine unveiled its first annual collection of the next generation of world’s 100 young leaders in New York City.

Every year, the Commonwealth Youth Awards for Excellence in Development Work recognise the exceptional contributions of young people from across the Commonwealth’s member countries that are leading initiatives to help deliver sustainable development goals.
