Enuf is Enuf!
Enuf rape and sexual violence!
We must aim for nothing less than zero tolerance for rape and sexual violence.
Enuf silence and apathy!
We need to break the chains of silence surrounding rape and sexual violence and expose perpetrators that give impunity to perpetrators. Let’s transform South Africa from the “rape capital of the world” to a safe and secure South Africa with zero tolerance to gender-based violence. Each one of us can do something to stop perpetrators of rape and sexual violence.
Enuf tolerance and fear!
Perpetrators of rape and sexual violence are criminals who must be brought to justice. Every man, woman and child should be free to enjoy their right to safety and security, and the peace of mind that comes with knowing sexual predators will be punished.
How it began
“Sexual violence in South Africa has been rated among the highest in the world. It is estimated that more than 40% of South African women will be raped in their lifetime, but only one in nine rape cases is currently reported. A woman is raped approximately every 30 seconds in South Africa. The scourge of rape does not discriminate against gender, age, race or social class. It affects the whole society."
How we operate
- To break the chain of silence protecting rape and sexual violence. Speaking up about rape and other acts of sexual violence can help the healing process for victims, mount pressure for prevention of these crimes and encourage reporting of them.
- To mobilise South Africans (individuals, families, communities, organisations, business, government, police and justice system, political parties, etc.) to unite in condemning the scourges of rape and sexual violence that have become endemic in society.
- To urge investigators, police and community members to assist in ensuring that criminals are brought to book.
- To ensure the shame of rape and sexual violence is placed on the right people - the perpetrators. Not the victims.
