Image: Working towards making sexual offences courts a reality The RSJC ‘big idea’ is that South Africa can reduce the number of rapes committed by increasing the conviction rates of these crimes.

The RSJC ‘big idea’ is that South Africa can reduce the number of rapes committed by increasing the conviction rates of these crimes and achieving stronger sentences for perpetrators. We believe that this goal can be achieved through the planned rollout of specialised sexual offences courts, which is why we advocate to hold our government accountable to the rollout of these courts. We believe that these specialised sexual offences courts are the key to restoring faith in the criminal justice system by decreasing the secondary victimisation of rape survivors, and in so doing increasing conviction rates for rape.   Read More...

Image: ACTIVATE : The State Of Whose Nation? This year’s SONA reads no different from previous ones except for the inclusion of “Woke Twitter” buzz-words such as #DataMustFall, land expropriation

It is important to note that Mr President has been paying attention (to some issues) as he made a point about the insufferable data price rates that needs to be lowered. We will be waiting for that with baited breath.Let’s break it down a little bit. Most opportunities (educational, employment and general) are mostly on the internet, and to connect to said internet, one needs data. So, if a majority who need to be linked with these opportunities are not reached because of the issue of access to these resources, a disconnect is born. The review of data pricing is welcomed, Mr President.   Read More...

But make no mistake…I am not here to please a man…Please don’t use me as an excuse to rape. Don’t hide behind me when you choose to abuse…”   Read More...
