The Portfolio Committee on Women, Children and People with Disabilities is calling on all South Africans to mark this year’s 16 days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children campaign as the beginning of a year-long campaign.

 This campaign would aim to ensure that South Africa is free of violence against women and children. 

The committee also said that a year long commitment to fighting abuse if essential in eliminating the scourge of child and woman abuse. 

Committee Chairperson Dorothy Ramodibe said the statistics show that for women abuse, they are going up instead of the decline.

Ramodibe adds that perpetrators need to be given harsher sentences.
