Lyn @Church Dialogue on Human Rights. 11/10/2011
Lyn participated in this exciting dialogue organised by Sonke Gender Justice Network, POWA and the SACC.
The theme was "The Role of Religious Institutions in curbing Sexual Violence". Lyn's presentation focussed on the role faith communities can play in addressing female sexual health.
One of the reasons for this dialogue was a programme on a South African pay TV channel , where there are apparently many examples of abuse of women particularly. If you know of any similar examples, please let CABSA know (email@example.com). We will coordinate a campaign to try and stop abuse of this kind.
Included below is Lyn's presentation and a report on the dialogues from the SANAC men's sector
Opening prayer: Rev. Monwabisi Mcophela
