SA unites to speak out against woman and child abuse

2017-11-22 06:01

Members of the South African public are urged to wear a white ribbon as a symbolic pledge towards eliminating the scourge of woman and child abuse.

This year’s 16 Days of ­Activism of No Violence against Women and Children is observed from Saturday (25/11) until 10 December.

A sexual offences court will be launched during the campaign and it is hoped that it will ensure better access to the justice system.
