Former Uzalo actress MaNgcobo takes a stand and calls for change

Gender-Based-Violence (GBV), is a very sensitive topic that prominent celebrities never shy away from speaking about. For 16-days of activism, many South Africans celebrities are joining the movement to end GBV and one of them is well-known actress Dawn Thandeka King.

"With so many women and children making up so many of the amazing talents we love and celebrate on sports, arts and culture spaces, we stand fully behind #16DaysOfActivism campaign". She said.

The actress was also quoted by Daily Sun talking about protecting women who are talented and gifted when it comes to various sectors in the arts and sports industry.

Dawn Thandeka King thinks when perpetrators destroy these women, the industry also gets destroyed, "when you protect the talent they possess. There's a lot of talent in art, sport and culture in women and children. If you destroy these people, you are destroying the arts industry. We should say enough is enough.

"Being silent about abuse creates mental illness. And it gives power to the abuser to do it over and over again. Women and children are scared because their abusers threaten them, some are scared because they don't know if they will get support, should they report it. Let us work together and report it. Let us work together and protect those who can't protect themselves". Said Dawn.
