Despite elaborate constitutional and legal assurances, violence against women is a pervasive issue in South Africa, and it affects the human rights of women and girls of all ages, backgrounds, and walks of life. It includes physical, psychological, cultural, socio-economic, abuse, discrimination, and gender-based violence.
In addition to denouncing gender based violence and the abuse of children, African Monitor (AM) and the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation (CSVR) propose to expand the annual campaign of 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence & Femicide and thus propose the 16 Days of Activism TOWARDS Gender Equality in line with the government of South Africa and relevant stakeholders who are implementing, monitoring and are committed to achieving the #globalgoals for sustainable #development.
Through the expanded campaign, AM and CSVR call for recognising, acknowledging and reporting 16 Action Steps implemented by the government of South Africa and the relevant stakeholders for the period 2015 – 2023, which promoted the accelerated achievement of gender equality in South Africa and together with partner civil society organisations (CSOs) are encouraging government in include #SDG5 in the 2024 Voluntary National Review (VNR).
On Friday, 8 December to be convened in Johannesburg, AM & CSVR aim to activate the expanded campaign of 16 Days of Activism TOWARDS Gender Equality
