Government hosts Stakeholder Consultations on Gender Based Violence and Femicide Draft National Strategic Framework, 9 to 13 Sep

Invitation to Stakeholder Consultations on the Gender Based Violence and Femicide Draft National Strategic Framework

The escalating number of Gender-Based Violence and Femicide (GBVF) cases in South Africa has prompted a call to action which was led by #TheTotalShutdown. The Presidential Gender- Based Violence and Femicide Summit sat on the 2nd November 2018 and produced a Declaration which entailed deliverables that must be taken forward and be implemented in dealing with the crisis of GBVF.

An Interim Steering Committee was formed as per article 3 of the Declaration, with the mandate to draft a National Strategic Plan Framework and establish a Multi � Sector GBVF Council, which will be the Coordinating body that will champion the National GBVF work.
