Enough is enough!
Women are taking a stand against violence against women and children in the country.
South Africa has seen a massive rise in gender-based violence and femicide in recent months.
On the 1st day of Women's month, women from all sectors of South Africa will shut down the country in protest against gender-based violence. The mass action will also be taking place in Lesotho and Botswana.
