Fundraiser for Uyinene’s Family

Update posted by Joshua Don On Sep 04, 2019

We currently face what’s akin to a war against women in South Africa. Recent events have demonstrated that women are not at liberty to go anywhere without having to fear for their lives - albeit to, from or at the grocery store, campus, a club, a pre-school, the post office, or even one’s own home. It has been clearly illustrated that there simply is NO safe place for the women of this country.

  • In light of this, a collective of femmes in the Cape Town area aim to provide a means for women to defend themselves in these troubling times. It is thus our intention to collect funds in order to purchase and distribute at least 300 units of pepper spray @ R135 per can to women in need at the University of Cape Town. It is our hope that this will at least make a small difference to the safety of women the interim before the government decides to initiate serious efforts to solve this deep structural issue within our society.
  • Please stand with us and contribute to the cause where possible. It is in our collective best interest to address this sickness that exists in our country, so in addition, we ask that you continue the conversation and help us keep this narrative alive. Enough is enough.
  • "This is the breaking point, the 'enough is enough' moment, the time to stand up and say that we WILL NOT tolerate this any longer. We have to deal with this culture of violence against women that is so deeply entranced within our society." - N Nkoane
  • "We 're a country with no rainbow, only rain. And that rain is red and warm and bruised between her thighs." - Z D Human
In honour and loving memory of Uyinene Mrwetyana, Jesse Hess, Leighandre Jegels, Lynette Volschenk, Meghan Cremer and the many other victims of gender-based violence. We will not forget.
