DID YOU KNOW:

  • One out of every four women in South Africa is in an abusive relationship.

  • Every six days a woman in South Africa is murdered by her intimate partner.

  • Every 25 seconds a woman or girl is raped in South Africa.

These shocking statistics are not new to us, because every time we read a newspaper or turn on the television, we are made aware of the escalating level of abuse towards women and girls that takes place in our communities every day. We are calling all South Africans to stand together and speak out.
