Gender violence is as much a lived reality for women in this country as human trafficking. Unfortunately, it doesn’t make the news headlines as often. In this issue, Ronny Rammutla, co-founder of Men Against Prostitution and Trafficking of Women (MAPTOW) addresses men on this matter (see page 12).
We also profile the Can you see me? campaign, run by global anti-human trafficking organisation A21 (see page 16). Let us know your thoughts on this issue.
Heritage Day is on 24 September. Amidst all the negativity, South Africa has no shortage of talented and inspiring individuals. Musician Jeremy Olivier is changing the world, one song at a time. No stranger to The Big Issue family, Jeremy believes that Africa’s time to rise has come (see page 28).
Look out for the extract from Zephany by Joanne Jowell on page 34. Zephany tells the story of the young woman Miché Solomon who discovered that she is Zephany Nurse who was kidnapped from hospital as a baby.
If you’re looking for an outdoor adventure with your family or friends, check out the West Coast wildflower route on page 38. Do share your pictures with us.
