6 Dec Activism & Fighting Abuse
Noluvo Swelindawo was a 22-year-old woman from the Driftsands community in the Western Cape, who had her home broken into by 10 men. According to news reports she was abducted, raped and killed for being a lesbian. All of this during the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children campaign. Do campaigns of this nature have any impact? Are they relevant? Are enough men speaking out against behaviours by other men against women of this nature? And are women fighting back enough on this societal issue which plagues the country? Tumi and Mabale explore these points.
