Stop the Bus! Day 1 – Enthusiastic Departure

The 2011 Stop the Bus team ready for departure.

The first day of the Stop the Bus Campaign was relaxed and jovial. Everyone was in high spirits and fired up about our forthcoming journey. Old campaigners related their stories to the newcomers and the air was relaxed and supportive. The most important thing that was shared with me today: No matter how draining the nature of the issues we are dealing with might be, you will be invigorated by the act of empowering other women.

We have a vision of a South Africa in which rape survivors suffer no secondary trauma, and are supported throughout their interaction with the Criminal Justice System (CJS). Our mission is to promote an end to violence against women, specifically rape, and to assist women to achieve their right to live free from violence. Rape Crisis Cape Town seeks to achieve its mission through counselling and training of women, thereby reducing the trauma experienced by rape survivors, and encouraging reporting of rape and the conviction of rapists.
