Mungo Soggot

President Cyril Ramaphosa declared gender based violence the new national disaster facing the country – alongside the Covid-19 pandemic.

In June alone, more than 30 women and children were killed in cases of GBV

Beyond the horror of this violence, there were also stories of hope. 

Here we told of three strong women –  a police officer, a sangoma and a musician – who have all been abused and attacked by people they trusted and loved.
