Scourge of women and children abuse

29 October 2012, 07:24
I am so angry. I am angry reading about the high number of rapes and women/children abuse in this country. I am angry that no one is doing anything. I am angry that many men are seeing this as a women problem. I am angry with myself for not being part of a solution. Those sitting on the sidelines like me, whether with disgust on their faces or not, are part of the problem. We are part of the problem because of our apathy. We are part of the problem because without us, more children and women will be affected. I want to hear from the women out there what should we do? how can we help?

To the Minister who is in charge of safety and security both nationally and provincially - Recently, I read about a young girl being gang raped by group of boys (read gang) and the video being uploaded onto Facebook. Why do we have to hear stories such as this happening repeatedly in our country? Why is there such numbers of abuse of women and children in this country? Why is there no strategy to overcome this curse?

To the parents of those boys - you disgust me. I read that you didn't have the decency to see the girl's mother to apologise for what your sons did. You should be punished for bringing up such kids who join gangs. You are no worse than your rapist children.

To ANCWL - I hear you protesting about many things. When are you going to start protesting against women abuse? When are you going to care about the females in this country?

I am angry.
