“I had to choose between the devil at night… or going to school with blue eyes.” – Elvine Jooste, Goodwood.

Rape, physical abuse, and emotional torture – women who go through abuse face these experiences every day. We sympathise, we raise awareness, but do we really know what they go through? In this powerful film, a group of women from Eerste Rivier come forward and share their stories about facing gender-based violence in South Africa.

Facing GBV – Part 1 is the first part of a 6 part series. With special thanks to the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives, the City of Cape Town’s Social Development and Early Childhood Development Department Areas East, and Fatima Mohammed.
