The Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution (CASAC) says government needs to establish special courts for rape victims as soon as possible.
The organisation says the high prevalence of rape and other forms of sexual violence raise fundamental questions about the Criminal Justice System.
CASAC spokesperson, Nomboniso Gasa, points out that, "We need to look at the establishment of special courts to deal with sexual violence, to deal with domestic and family violence, some of them courts and some of them special courts for gender violence."
CASAC joined hundreds of people in Bredasdorp at a rally for 17-year-old Anene Booysen, who was raped, mutilated and murdered.
