The Silent Protest against gender-based violence

On Tuesday, 29 August 2017, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, the Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) and UCT Survivors will host a day-long Silent Protest at the university. The protest will affirm the university’s solidarity with survivors who have been silenced by sexual violence and rape culture. In a recent VC Desk, Vice-Chancellor Dr Max Price encouraged the university community to participate in the Silent Protest to help bring public attention to a tragedy that diminishes our humanity every day.
