Deputy Minister to address student leaders at Anti-GBV Assembly

Deputy Minister of Higher Education, Science, and Innovation, Buti Manamela, will deliver a keynote address at the Anti-Gender Based Violence and Femicide Assembly in Cape Town on the 7th of September.

The assembly will bring together about 250 student leaders from universities and Technical and Vocational Education and Training Colleges in the Western Cape.

The department says the focus will be to address the needs and challenges faced by students vulnerable to gender-based violence.

The Assembly is in memory of Uyinene Mrwetyana, who was a student at the University of Cape Town at the time of her death in 2019.

According to reports, this model of participatory pedagogy will enable staff and all students in the PSET to design programmes and further come up with solution-orientated interventions to create cultural norms that aim to address issues of toxic masculinity, patriarchy, misogynoir, and other related problematic social attitudes that continue to plague our institutions in higher education training sector.
