Social Development Minister Lindiwe Zulu says partnerships with NGO’s and support from communities has been fruitful in the fight against women abuse.
This as campaigns continue for 16 Days of Activism against the abuse of women and children.
Zulu says they will be rolling out educational programmes that will help the public understand that patriarchy still plays a huge role in the abuse of women and children.
She adds that traditional cultural teachings also have a hand in the exacerbation of the GBV scourge as it usually promotes patriarchy.
“This thing of teaching young boys that certain chores are for women and others are for men is one of the reasons men feel superior then women”, Zulu said.
