Minister in the Presidency Responsible for Women, Susan Shabangu, hosted an Imbizo at Thokoza Ekurhuleni Municipality on Sunday. It was part of extending the 16 Days of Activism Campaign to a longer-term and more inclusive programme culminating to #365 of Activism for no Violence Against Women and Children.

“The Imbizo on Violence Against Women and Children is an extension of the, the Department of Women’s National Dialogues for No Violence against Women and Children.

“The objective of the initiative is to better understand lived experiences of communities in relation to violence against women and children. Findings of these Dialogues inform policy reviews at all levels of government to respond to causes,” the Department of Women said.

South Africa adopted the campaign in 1998 as one of the intervention strategies towards creating a society free of violence. The campaign continues to raise awareness amongst South Africans about the negative impact of violence against women and children on all members of the community.
