Mayor Makhubo launches City’s Women’s Month programme in Johannesburg

vendredi 25 septembre 2020

The executive mayor of the City of Johannesburg, councillor Geoffrey Makhubo, unveiled the City’s Women’s Month programme, which aims to address gender-based violence and femicide (GBV&F) on August 12.

Celebrated and commemorated under the national theme “Generation Equality : Realising women’s rights for an equal future”, the programme will be rolled out in a three-phased approach as follows :

• GBV (week one) August 10 to 14, which is aimed at describing and analysing the GBV&F situation in the City, including prevention, mitigation and response in terms of medical, case management and psycho-social support.

Part of the planned activities for week one will include the re-launch of the substance abuse and GBV&F crisis line and a series of dialogues centred around the City’s response to GBV&F with faith-based organisations (FBOs), the LGBTQI +community and children.

• Women empowerment (week two) August 17 to 22, will seek to advance interventions that provide an opportunity to reflect on existing roles, and to explore opportunities to question gender divisions in skills development and labour market.
