STREET TALK

Breaking the Silence (Video)

Breaking the Silence (Video)

We hear from a powerful group of women who have been mistreated, violated and suffered at the hands of men on a daily basis. These experiences have become the norm for many in South Africa, with most being left silenced. Why is it that men feel entitled to women’s bodies? How can an abuser walk free without any consequences?  Most importantly, when will we wake up to the problems of abuse?

This film was produced by Street Talk.
