Hundreds of UCT students and staff participated in a silent protest on campus against gender-based violence on 2 August 2019. It formed part of UCT’s #JustNo campaign, a campus-wide initiative to raise awareness about gender-based violence, rape and other violent sexual crimes that affect the UCT community, South Africa and the world. The protest also highlighted how gender-based violence is driving new HIV infections.
