As part of the centenary celebrations of former President Nelson Mandela and struggle stalwart Mama Albertina Sisulu, government and various social partners is signing a pledge to stop violence against women and children.
Both these stalwarts committed their lives to the fight for the human rights particularly women and children.
The pledge was kick-started by a #100MenMarch on 10 July that drew at least 100 men from various sectors of society, such as government, business, labour, faith-based organisations, non-profit and media organisations to stop the abuse of women and children.

My pledge to end violence against women and children
Change begins with me, and I can motivate others to end violence against women and children.
I pledge to help break the culture of silence that accompanies violence and abuse.
I pledge not to commit violence and to act when I see violence against women and children.
I pledge to teach those in my care the values of human dignity, equality and respect.
The Pledge to end violence against women and children petition to South African Men was written by GCIS and is in the category Government at GoPetition.
