NoExcuse for Gender-based Violence

ep3

In their efforts to eradicate gender-based violence from society, uMfolozi TVET College in partnership with Luminosity Productions held a #NoExcuse workshop at Mandeni Campus on 7 March 2019.   The focus of the event was on creating awareness and providing support for victims of gender-based violence.

Students were educated on the six forms of gender-based violence (physical abuse, rape, sexual harassment, emotional or psychological abuse, economic abuse, structural abuse) and on how they can identify them.

According to Student Liaison Officer, Ms Nontobeko Ngcobo, gender-based violence affects everyone, “It is estimated globally that 1 in 3 women have been a victim of gender-based violence, that means that we all know a friend or a family member who has experienced some form of abuse,” she said.

Mr Sydney Madibo, #NoExcuse facilitator said “Men who abuse do so because something has gone wrong in their journey from childhood to manhood and in their understanding of masculinity. A man with healthy masculinity uses his strength well. He loves, protects, supports, encourages, fathers his children, provides for his loved ones and fights against what is wrong in the world. Healthy masculinity builds up and doesn’t tear down, it creates and never destroys. It is unhealthy, broken masculinity that abuses. Gender-based violence is anti-masculine in that it goes against everything that masculinity is supposed to be.”

“There is never an excuse for a man to physically assault a woman, ever. No matter what she does to provoke him or how insulting she may be. There is never an excuse for a man to have any kind of sexual contact with a woman against her will, ever. No matter what she is wearing or how sexually provocative she may be,” added Madibo.

The event ended with the students, both male and female taking a champion pledge not to be bystanders but to take action against women abuse.
