Declare GBV a national emergency, says Nehawu

GBV in South Africa

Any discrimination against women when inoculating against COVID-19 should be dealt with now.

This is the concern from worker unions Nehawu and some of its affiliates on this International Women’s Day.

They held a virtual event celebrating women, talking about the issues they face around the world.

“We said as an organization we will campaign for an establishment of gender-based violence forums in every workplace,” said Nyameka Macanda, Nehawu’s second deputy president.

“And we went further by calling for gender-based violence to be declared a national emergency within the country”.

Women are hoping all the talk, the hashtags, and the marches will soon bring some change.
