16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence

A Sermon by Dr Sipho Senabe, member of the Riverlea URC, yesterday reminded us again of the link between the prevalance and spread of HIV/AIDS and on the other hand gender-based violence. The 16 Days of Activism against Gender violence seeks to address this matter and need to be supported by the churches. Dr Senabe encouraged the church to become safe spaces for women, oppressed and violated by husbands, partners and boyfriends. We need to stand up against this scourge in our communities, but also in our homes, in our bedrooms, in the sanctity of our churches.
