The 2018 Presidential Summit on Gender-based Violence and Femicide is evidence of the concern and political will to eradicate the root causes of gender-based violence and femicide. The Declaration of the Summit endorses the President’s call to “all South Africans to respond to gender-based violence and femicide, inclusive of the needs of people with disabilities and gender non-conforming people. The Government and key stakeholders are now agreed on the need to establish a multi-sectoral, coordinating structure to respond to gender based violence and femicide; to allocate the necessary and adequate resources required; and to develop a national gender based violence and femicide strategy".
