A lot of women are being killed in South Africa. These killings mostly happen in Johannesburg. A lot of young girls are being killed by their intimate partners. We need to do something about these sad happenings.
Girls are being kidnapped, they are being raped by their own families. Girls are now slaves in their own father’s land. We are no longer safe around men, we have become victims.
Women must walk around with different weapons in the purses and pockets to protect themselves. In Soweto, about 20 girls have been killed and almost all of them are left for dead with their body parts mutilated.
Men are selling our body parts for money. Women are the pillar of strength. Without us, there is no future. We seek help from all security forces. We need to stop these women killings and abuse. We need our safety back.
Let’s have a hashtag: #NOTOTHEKILLINGSOFOURWOMEN!
