I pledge to be an interrupter of gender-based violence.
I pledge to speak up, stand up and end any silence on gender-based violence.
I will do this wherever I am and whomever I’m with so that there is no longer a place for GBV in South Africa.
I will interrupt derogatory conversations, language and jokes – both on and offline.
I will interrupt the cycle of violence by educating my peers and younger generations on what behaviour is, and isn’t, acceptable.
I will interrupt violence by having conversations with friends, family, peers, colleagues and neighbours on how behaviours need to change.
I will interrupt violence by being a constant reminder that women have equal rights and should never have to experience the pain that comes with abuse.
I will demand accountability from leaders to deliver on their duty to bring justice to survivors and victims of GBV.
From this moment on, I pledge to help end gender-based violence.
