Call to Dismantle Patriarchy to End Violence

Xingwana says dismantling patriarchy is key to bringing down the high levels of violence against women and girls

The Minister for Women, Children and People living with Disabilities, Lulu Xingwana, says dismantling patriarchy is key to bringing down the high levels of violence against women and girls.

Speaking at the Commission on the Status of Women at the UN in New York, which is grappling specifically with the issue of violence against women, Xingwana said South Africa is lobbying within the Africa group over issues that are threatening consensus on the outcome document.

She also told those present that the South African Constitution allows women the right to choose and therefore, adding that there is no way that government can support restrictions to women's freedoms.
