Victory Siyanqoba initiative on domestic violence

Victory Siyanqoba Trust, the group behind Eziko Theatre Arts Initiative has embarked on a project which is meant to educate women on human rights and how to guard against domestic violence. The project saw about 52 women from Nkulumane, Nketa and Emganwini coming together to share ideas last Thursday. The women were afforded a rare chance to discuss the issues while washing clothes (as pictured on the right) at a community borehole. a�?The objective of the project is for women to come together and discuss issues of human rights and domestic violence as they carry out different chores, for example, last Thursday 52 women gathered in Nkulumane where they discussed such issues while washing clothes.
a�?There is an inevitable need to redefine the socially regressive traditions and cultures that continue to ride upon the biological definitions, implications and meanings of a�?gendera�� thereby
stereotyping and discriminating the other child-bearing human species,a�? said the project director Desire Moyo. Project co-ordinator Esther Zitha said the project aimed at incorporating women into
agents of change. a�?These are highly social, semi-formal, vibrant and innovative womena��s platforms
that create a typical social scenario with fluidity of cohesion for the grassroot women through mobilising, organising and harnessing potential women comrades to combat gender based discrimination. The socially charged platform seeks to re-activate community women into agents of social transformation.
Thirty community women gather per session to wash their laundry at a public space where there is a borehole. a�?Issues are discussed and debated at this particular platform, with experts in womena��s
rights moderating or informally chairing the discussion as washing continues. Each woman brings a handful of laundry for washing during the session. To rebuild the moral fabric of the community, we need a new set of eyes, as women, to look at practical realities. Gender balance is not about the women physically dominating the spaces: But capacitated women taking charge. It is not about women
in attendance: But women in participation. It is not about the number of women committed: But number of women involved,a�? said Zitha She said there is need to reimburse women for time lost due to stereotypes.
a�?Community grassroot women are in the danger of being too comfortable to transform due to the traditions and customs that have created stereotypes out of women. There is urgent need to compensate women for lost time, privileges and opportunities due to social and historical disadvantages. These processes of social exclusion left women bound in the domestic sphere while men dominate the public sphere a�?It is time for women to liberate men from such misconceptions and demanding roles by redefining themselves as equally capable and potentially capacitated fellow human beings with boundless energy and unlimited faith in themselves,a�? she said
