Massive turnout for 10th silent protest

A huge crowd of about 1000 students, school pupils and people from around the Eastern Cape gathered at the 10th annual day-long silent protest against gender violence at Rhodes University yesterday.

The crowd came together to take a stand against gender violence, show solidarity with victims and survivors and to work towards breaking the silence around the pervasiveness of gender-based violence nationally and globally.
