Physical Abuse

Physical abuse is a form of Gender Based Violence and an act of causing injury or harm to another person. It can happen to anyone - women, men or children and is never acceptable.

Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse is a form of Gender Based Violence. Your body is your property, and nobody is allowed to make you do anything you are uncomfortable with. If you do not say yes willingly, then it's not legal.

Psychological Abuse

Psychological abuse is a form of Gender Based Violence. Not all abuse ends in cuts and bruises - insults, threats and shaming can scar an individual for years, resulting in anxiety and depression.

KNOWLEDGE
EMPOWERS
VICTIMS

Knowledge empowers victims (and witnesses) in the fight to END Gender Based Violence. At SPAR, we believe that knowing your rights is key to ENDing GBV and want to help educate you on your rights.

There are rights in the Constitution and other legislation that offer you protection against various forms of Gender Based Violence.

Here is a broad list of rights to help create greater awareness in the fight against GBV.
