Now that is statement you don’t often hear but sometimes we simply need to mind each other’s business.
In South Africa we have 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence is an international campaign to challenge violence against women and girls. The campaign runs every year from 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day.
Given the scourge of Gender-Based violence in the country, which is declared a national crisis, government is implementing the Emergency Response Action Plan on Gender-Based Violence and Femicide, which was announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa in September 2019.
This year my brother, Ebenezer Prophy has come up with an initiative, Minding my sisters business. This is an initiative to educate victims and society of their rights when engaging with the criminal justice system in association with The Office of Chief Justice, SAPS and the National Prosecuting Authority.
And we are inviting you to make a difference and do our part in support of 16 Days of activism against gender based violence.
Together, let us take action to support the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children campaign.
Be an activist against Gender Based Violence (GBV) in your homes, communities, and place of work.
The Thuthuzela Care Centres (TCC) are one stop facilities. A critical part of South Africa’s anti rape strategy aimed at reducing secondary victimization. Join us in the collection of items needed by the Thuthuzela Care Centres (TCC).
These items range from sanitary pads, shampoo, conditioner, underwear, toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, roll on, deodorant, hairbrush), sweets and chocolates, toys, bags for the items that make up the comfort pack. Victims of gender based violence receive these items during traumatic moments so let’s extend compassion and restore dignity in those moments.
Today, we are calling on everyone to use their common networks to assist in not only making this initiative a reality but also a success.
As my brother says, it is our collective responsibility to achieve the unconditional peace and security of women and children’s being so please mind your sister’s business.
Let us unite as women, mothers, wives and human beings by minding our sister’s business. Let us take care of each other.
You matter. We matter.
