“I Was Arrested And Shamed For My Leaked Nudes” – Judith Heard


Do you want to realize your full potential and enjoy life despite its occasional disappointments and frustrations? Follow @dearyoungnaijawoman

In Uganda, there is an anti-pornography law that states that anybody who exposes for whatever intentions, personal nude pictures, is liable.

As a result of this law, many women have had their nudes released by unknown people or even boyfriends, who they are no longer in good terms with. Sadly, the anti-pornography law doesn’t take into consideration the person who releases the picture or the circumstances under which a nude picture is released.

When Judith Heard’s nude pictures were released online last year, she was not only bashed by people, she was also arrested by the government. Everyday, she is reminded about her private parts.

According to Judith who is a model, the first time her nude picture hit the internet, she didn’t want to leave the house for fear of what people might do to her. But when another nude picture of hers was released, she didn’t let it get to her so much.

In a chat with BBC Africa, she explained that she doesn’t know who is releasing her nude pictures but she suspects that the photos are taken from her stolen laptop.

From her experiences, Judith is urging women, who have been victims like her to speak up, rather than be shamed into silence.

“We are being broken every single day and we cannot come out to talk about it. because you are scared. You are worried nobody is going to believe your story,” she said.

    Arrested and shamed? This is sad. Those who arrested her should have gone after the rogues doing the leaking. Africans and their backward mentality.

    CRITICISM is part of LEARNING and GROWTH. It means that you are taking INITIATIVES to learn something new and grow over from your current state. If you are not getting criticised, it means you are not taking enough RISK to learn something new and to grow.
