Statement of African National Congress Women's League on the Programmes of Young Women's Desk Against Gender Based Violences

25 July 2018

The African National Congress Women's League (ANCWL) supports the Young Women's Desk (YWD) program in fighting the scourge of gender based violences (GBV's).

The 54th national conference called for ANC cadres to develop programmes aimed at stamping out social ills, including gender based violence, alcoholism and drug abuse and in building social cohesion. The YWD programme on against GBV is fully supported by the ANCWL leadership collective and the entire membership of the ANCWL.

The YWD program against GBV's is embraced by all sectors of society and that has angered some of the ideological opponents of ANCWL and YWD. These opposing forces are now resorting to silly tactics of issuing fake statements and posters under the name of YWD. Their aim is to sow divisions in the ANC, its structures and Alliance partners and delegitimase YWD programs. The ANCWL is fully aware of statements and posters which were released by the YWD and those fake statements and posters which were released by the forces of darkness. No fake statements or posters will cause division in the movement.

The ANCWL remains resolute in supporting the YWD's program and further reiterates its support to programs of other organizations focusing on GBV's.

The YWD marches scheduled for the 1st of August 2018 continues and will take place as follows:
