In recent time, numbers of rape victim has been on the increase in Nigeria. Nigeria is still very much a patriarchal and misogynistic society; a society where rules are dictated and governed by men, and culture and tradition makes men head over women. The culture aspect includes gender norms that validate men as sexual pursuers and attitudes that view women as sexual conquests by which manhood is legitimized and women are objectified, as sexual objects to be owned, used, consumed, and even sexually abused by the "entitled"male.

The society on their part undermines the emotional trauma experienced by rape victims and thus become unsympathetic and sees it as a norm.

The documentary "Legal Rape" explores the uncomfortable memories of rape victims, violation of their human  right and their search for closure, in a society where the mindset of most people as it relates to sexual assault tends to be   un-empathetic, unsympathetic and seen as a norm.
