There are seven days to go before government and various social partners host a national #100MenMarch to stop violence against women and children.
On 10 July, at least 100 men from various sectors of society such as government, business, labour, faith-based organisations, non-profit and media organisations will take a stand to stop the abuse of women and children.
The march will start at 10am at Church Square and proceed to the southern lawns of the Union Buildings.
“Government calls on all men to join the #100MenMarch and boldly declare that violence against women and children will not be tolerated in their respective environment or communities. The #100MenMarch will be a motivating force to ensure that men break the chain of abuse,” said Phumla Williams, Acting Director General of Government Communication and Information System.
The march also forms part of the centenary celebrations of former President Nelson Mandela and struggle stalwart Mama Albertina Sisulu.
These stalwarts committed their lives to the fight for human rights, particularly women and children. The march in part celebrates their lives. – SAnews.gov.za
