Mark the dates: 24 November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and Children) through to International Human Rights Day on 10 December. In total: 16 Days! Imagine if, but if for only 16 days, there would have been no rape, no child abuse, no sexual harassment and no emotional abuse. Within the South African context, 16 Days of Activism has been declared against this scourge, which is hastingly eroding our very social fabric.
Media affects us in many ways, as a major socialising influence, a carrier of culture, a source of information, education and entertainment, an important factor in political communication and participation in a democracy and a communicator of ideological values and norms, attitudes and believes.

Mother-infant booksharing: Stellenbosch University shares their implementation experience
In 1998, the Domestic Violence Act (DVA) was enacted to afford victims of domestic violence the maximum protection from domestic abuse that the law can provide. The DVA enables victims of domestic abuse to apply for a protection order against an abuser. While the Act is an impressive piece of legislation, public hearings on the Act in 2009 raised a number of concerns by civil society on the Act’s implementation.
On International Translation Day (30 September 2013), we celebrated the invaluable role of children’s literature in translation in bringing children together through story.
What greater hope could we have for our youngest citizens than that they grow up marvelling at and wanting more of the treasury of stories from the vast patchwork of world culture, past and present? Stories that have travelled and crossed borders through translation allow us all to discover what it means to be human, in both unique and shared ways.
