‘Abused’ woman and child walk down the street

Their theme was “Walking a day in someone else’s shoes.”

Workers of the Standerton Public Library decided to show their support towards the 16 Days of Activism against Women and Child Abuse.

Since 10 December was the last day of the campaign, they decided to dress up as abused women and a little boy joined in.

Their theme was “Walking a day in someone else’s shoes”.

They walked around the streets of Standerton to show the public that abuse is a reality in our everyday lives and put up posters about abuse as well as Childline posters.

Their make-up portrayed physical abuse and Ms Sinazo Mpila said she could see people were shocked by their appearance.

She also said there is no excuse for being abusive and that these 16 days should not be the only time that women and children get support.

Ms Mpila hopes the whole department participates next year.
