Courageous Conversation on GBV: Doing the Difficult Work
JOIN THE CONVERSATION ON 13 AUGUST: GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE – DOING THE DIFFICULT WORK
Gender-based violence was at epidemic proportions in South Africa before the COVID-19 pandemic.
This topic is often at the centre of conversations hosted by government and other sectors of society and usually peaks during the 16 days of Activism against violence against women and children, which takes place in November-December each year in South Africa.
Yet despite all action that has been taken, we don’t seem to be making sufficient strides in the fight against gender-based violence (GBV) and femicide, in South Africa as well as elsewhere in the world.
This begs the question: what more needs to happen to eliminate the scourge of GBV?
The Embassy of France in South Africa is committed to advancing gender equality and a society free of violence against women, children and LGBTIQ people.
This Women’s Month, we would like to contribute to the conversation and help foster thought-provoking and inclusive discussions that can lead to action and accountability.
Join us for an online Courageous Conversation on ‘GBV: Doing the difficult work’ on 13 August 2020, to discuss what it takes to walk the talk.
This event is hosted by the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation (DLTLF), in partnership with the French Embassy and the French Institute in South Africa (IFAS).
