Rights Groups Slam Attack on Woman

Rights organisations slam an incident in which a woman was attacked for wearing trousers

Gender rights organisations have expressed dismay that another woman has been assaulted at Umlazi’s notorious Unit 17 hostel for wearing trousers.

Tshwaranang Legal Advocacy Centre’s (TLAC) Lisa Vetten, points out that the latest incident suggested women are dealing with a problem of culture at the hostel.

Vetten is of the view that the izinduna (headmen) running Unit 17 need to attend training on gender equality and take a much stronger stand against these incidents.
