As today marks the start of the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children, South Africans have been called to take a stand against violence and abuse. 

In South Africa someone gets raped every four minutes and an estimated 30 percent of girls will be raped by the time they are 18-years-old. 

President Jacob Zuma will officially launch the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children in Reiger Park. 

Presidential Spokesperson Mac Maharaj said the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children is an international campaign observed from 25 November to 10 December to raise awareness of the negative impact that violence has on women, children and society.

Maharaj added that this year’s campaign will be held under the theme “Count Me In. Together moving a non-violent South Africa forward”.
