Less than half say violence against women and children is handled well

[Johannesburg, 11 August 2015] - Less than half of South African adults (44%) say that the government is handling violence against women and children in a satisfactory way.

There is no difference in the views of men and women, with only 15% saying the government is handling this issue "very well" and 29% saying "fairly well". This relatively low score is quite worrying, especially in view of the much-publicised campaign of 16 days of Activism against violence against women and children happening every year during November and December.

A slightly higher proportion of almost six in every ten adults say that the government is doing very or fairly well with promoting equality between men and women (57%) and that we have seen a great improvement in the area of women's rights over the last 20 years (56%).
