Mashatile emphasized the need to address the scourge and its crucial contribution to the growth of the nation.
On Sunday, he gave a speech at the Limpopo launch of the Takuwani Riime Programme of Action 2023–2025 run by the 3rd National Men’s Parliament.
It’s critical that we recognize the prevalence of violence against women on a global scale and recognize that it can be eradicated with coordinated effort.
We are aware that gender-based violence has a negative effect on men’s socioeconomic status in addition to that of women and girls. Therefore, it is urgent and essential for South Africa and Africa’s development to put an end to this scourge.
The call comes before the Saturday-starting 16 Days of Activism campaign for No Violence Against Women and Children.
