White Ribbon South Africa Community Status Toolkit Launched– ending violence against women and girls in our communities

White Ribbon South Africa Community Status Toolkit Launched– ending violence against women and girls in our communities It is 64 years since 20 000 women, black and white, old and young, working-class and other strata, gathered on 9 August 1956 from across all of South Africa, by train, bus and taxi, to resist the marginalisation and oppression of women from the economic opportunity and livelihood through the imposition of passes.
In 2019 -at the Centenary Session of the I.L.O. in Geneva, the Convention passed resolution C190 to outlaw GBV and Harassment from the Workplace -see extracts below. Despite promises the South African Government has still failed to ratify over a year later. Just as in most countries around the world, the situation in South Africa has worsened in the last few weeks as a result of the Corona virus with GBV and Femicide in the home on a dramatic increase. The South African Justice Minister said recently that "Laws are not enough - it needs buy in from all men - young and old to succeed" - which is true, however, as South Africans slowly return to work the Ratification of C190 will give them some security knowing they at least have key legislation to protect them in their place of work - so we ask you to join us and sign the Petition calling on the South African Government to quickly ratify C190.
