17 seconds

A woman is raped every 17 seconds in South Africa.

A woman, not a slut.

That woman could be a granny, a mom, a teacher, a dancer, a lawyer, a cashier, a nun, a doctor, a farm worker, a singer, a student, a social worker, a teenager, a bookkeeper, a married woman, a virgin, a lesbian, a straight woman, a woman who wears a burka, a woman who wears jeans, a woman who wears a short skirt, a woman who wears takkies, a woman who wears heals, a woman who wears make up,  a woman who wears no make up, a woman!

That woman was not raped because she wore sexy or revealing clothing.  She was raped because a man raped her.

We should be teaching our boys and men not to rape!  Not telling woman not to dress a certain way or talk a certain way or behave a certain way.  Men should NOT rape!

This year on 9th of August we will be holding the second annual Johannesburg SlutWalk.

Please join us!
