FAMSA organised a march in support of 16 days of activism against women and child abuse. Thuthuzela and FCS were beneficiaries of the march and Sasol also supported the march on Saturday, 1 December. The 16 days of activism against women and child abuse was launched on 25 November in Melmoth, Kwa–Zulu Natal. This year the theme is: #HearMeToo End Violence against Women and Children! The campaign will run until 10 December. Over the 16 days, the government will have talks on this matter to discuss problem areas, what causes or leads to such violence and come up with solutions. The objectives of the 16 Days Campaign are to: 1. Attract all South Africans to be active participants in the fight to eradicate violence against women and children, hence the theme: Count me in. 2. Expand accountability beyond the Justice, Crime Prevention and Security (JCPS) cluster to include all government clusters and provinces. 3. Combine technology, social media, the arts, journalism, religion, culture and customs, business and activism to draw attention to the many ways violence against women and children affects the lives of all people in all communities around the world. 4. Ensure mass mobilisation of all communities to promote collective responsibility in the fight to eradicate violence against women and children. 5. Encourage society to acknowledge that violence against women and children is NOT a government or criminal justice system problem, but a societal problem, and that failure to view it as such results in all efforts failing to eradicate this scourge in our communities. Emphasise the fact that the solution lies with all of us. (Source: https://www.gov.za/16DaysofActivism2018) – Ané Prinsloo
