About this webinar:

The COVID-19 pandemic has provided another moment in media, popular and scholarly discourse to visibilise the extent, persistence, and consequences of gender-based violence and femicide in South Africa. While the most recent statistics indicate a decline in the rate of femicide between 1999 and 2017 – we know that GBV and femicide continue to be an ongoing, impervious problem for South African women, sexual and gender diverse and non-conforming persons, limiting our freedoms and the true attainment of gender equity. In this current moment, we turn renewed and ongoing attention to the question of gendered violence and femicide and ask: What are the everyday knowledges and practices that we need to refuse and unsettle toward provoking change toward freedom? What and where are the possibilities for building a non-violent future?
