South Africa has the highest rape statistics in the world. Every 46 seconds a woman in South Africa is raped. Another way of stating that is that on average 1.3 rapes occur every minute. Often the woman is murdered to prevent identification of the criminal. If she survives, she & her family bear emotional and often physical scars for the rest of their lives.

Catching the perpetrator after the fact, is not the answer as that woman's life has been irrevocably changed for the worse by that stage. What is the South Africa Government doing to proactively reduce these statistics and restore dignity to the women of South Africa?

Please sign this petition if you feel strongly about this issue so that we may take this forward to the various structures in South Africa demanding proactive solutions.
