Shaik Emam, Mr AM to ask the Minister in The Presidency for Women, Youth and Persons with Disabilities
What measures did she and/or her Office put in place at grassroots level with the different stakeholders including Basic Education, Social Development and the SA Police Service to monitor the protection woman enjoy against the risks of being raped, murdered and becoming victims of genderbased violence?
The Department is facilitating establishment of Gender Based Violence and Femicide Rapid Response Teams (GBVF RRTs) at Local and District Municipality levels. The purpose of these Multi Stakeholder GBVF structures is to coordinate supportive response to GBVF victims and GBVF Prevention initiatives in the Municipalities. The GBVF RRTs are made up of government departments (i.e. Department of Basic Education, Social Development, South African Police Services and other government departments that are key in the fight against the scourge of GBVF). The Civil Society Organisations and other government entities, like the Thuthuzela Care Centres and Victim Empowerment Centres are also represented in these Local Multi Stakeholder GBVF Structures.
Approved by Minister
Ms M Nkoana-Mashabane, MP
