Rape: A South African Nightmare

CCR held a public dialogue to launch the book Rape: A South African Nightmare, winner of the 2016 Sunday Times Alan Paton Award, in Cape Town on Tuesday 31 May 2016.

Professor Pumla-Dineo Gqola, Department of African Literature, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, and author of the book, and Dr Helen Moffett, author, academic, editor and poet addressed the meeting. Ms Shamillah Wilson, Consultant, Centre for Conflict Resolution, was the chair.

Why has South Africa been labelled the 'world's rape capital'? What don't we as South Africans understand about rape? In Rape: A South African Nightmare, Pumla Dineo Gqola unpacks the complex relationship South Africa has with rape by paying attention to the patterns and trends of rape, asking what we can learn from famous cases and why South Africa is losing the battle against rape. (Excerpt from Jacana Media Press Release)

The Centre for Conflict Resolution (CCR), Cape Town, South Africa, would like to thank the Embassy of Finland, Pretoria, for its support of this public dialogue. CCR would also like to thank its other donors for their support of the Centre's Africa Programme.
