Umlazi resident Zandile Mpanza has become a beacon of hope for thousands of women for standing up to the men who stripped her because they disapprove of women wearing pants. Judgment against her attackers is expected next week.

The young woman still trembles when she speaks about her ordeal when four men accosted her while she was doing her washing. They beat and kicked her before allegedly ripping off her pants. She was made to walk through the suburb dressed only in panties and a shirt. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
