All women are prey for deeply violent men who feel entitled

"For many women in this country, a simple journey to the post office, a short drive to the gym, a visit to a beloved uncle may very well lead to a bloody termination of their lives. There is nowhere to hide for women in this country, regardless of the socio-economic positions one may be in – all women are prey for the deeply vile man who feels entitled to the women’s bodies."

Mmabatho Mokause

"We’re a country with no rainbow, only rain. And that rain is red and warm and bruised between her thighs."

Zoë Human

"We must start expanding a society of consent that hears a women’s NO and respects it without demanding access to her body or her emotions. We must start raising our children differently. When you tell your son that boys don’t cry, you must toughen up what you doing is raising men who don’t know how to deal with their emotions healthily and it is us women that have to deal with that toxic behaviour."
