There are a lot of challenges facing women today

“There are a lot of challenges facing women today. We need to focus on addressing issues that lead to gender-based violence. No one was born violent, it starts somewhere, and we tend to turn a blind eye to GBV until it becomes a major problem. Cultural beliefs are also a factor in this matter, it starts at home, when parents fight in front of their children. They are taught that a woman must submit to and obey her husband, and a husband must beat the woman to discipline her. Let's teach our children that they can do things for themselves and respect each other regardless of gender as we raise young men and women.”Poncilia Mazibuko, Child Aid Abaqulusi Project Leader #HappyWomensMonth
