Parliament needs to address Gender Based Violence in South Africa

In Sierra Leone the president declared 200 rapes for the a year a state of emergency. South Africa’s murders against women are currently around 3000 per year, whilst sexual offenses against women are at 50 000 per year.
Signing this petition will help our government realise the severity of the situation or that we are no longer tolerating this. Gender based violence needs to be discussed and addressed from the Parliamentarian level already. Our society has embedded a violence against our women. Our government needs to address this societal issue by putting measures into place that will eradicate violence against women, rid our society of toxic patriarchal values and ensure gender justice.
Please Note: Donations via Change.org goes to advertising this petition. I do not personally receive any of the money nor do I benefit in any shape or form from this petition. I've merely created this in memory of all the women who've died tragically from GBV - an issue that is threatening the livelihood of many women today and an issue that frustrates and affects me deeply.
