41% of 124,000 rape cases reported in the last three years was against children.

Join us at AFRICAN SUN MeDIA and wear black on Friday 6 September 2019 and take a stand against gender-based and child violence.

*The term womxn is an alternative term for the word women, which has been in use since 2015 to explicitly include transgender women and women of colour. It is also a rejection of the etymology of 'woman' being 'of man', but rather their own free and separate entities. It serves to shed light on the prejudice, discrimination and institutional barriers women have faced.
