Call for SA to End Gender-Based Violence

Children’s rights advocate, Graça Machel, is calling for a rethink about how to tackle violence in South Africa

Renowned women and children’s rights advocate, Graça Machel, has called for a rethink about how to tackle the high levels of violence in South African society.

Delivering the second annual Desmond Tutu International Peace Lecture at University of the Western Cape, Machel said apartheid has left many psychologically and emotionally scarred.

She suggested the country needed an institution similar to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission to solve the problem, adding that 18 years of freedom is not enough time to reverse the serious psychological and emotional damage done to South African society.
