Black Doek Movement SA was birthed in response to the increasing gender-based violence incidents in South Africa. This was further highlighted during the Covid-19 lockdown. The Black Doek Movement SA serves to represent and advocate for the rights of womxn, children and men, shouting “STOP KILLING US!” A movement made of womxn clothed in strength, dignity, tenacity; determined to encourage freedom, wisdom, determination, victory, hope, love, class, grace and a deep will for justice to be served. A movement ready to STAND UP for an immediate end to the brutal killing of womxn and children in South Africa. Abuse is abuse and violence does not discriminate.
The Black Doek Movement aims to be fully inclusive in addressing issues of gender-based violence and femicide. Our approach seeks to address the challenges faced by marginalised communities and our movement calls for an end to all forms of homophobic attacks and hate crimes against of anyone, regardless of their disability, gender identity or sexual orientation.
The #BlackDoekMovementSA represents womxn and men who are voiceless, more so, children who are the observers and or victims of violent crime in South Africa (SA).
Our Vision: We envision a SA where gender-based violence and femicide (GBVF) will be brought to an immediate end; where womxn, children and men are safe, treated equally and are supported; receiving the justice they deserve.
Our Mission: A movement representing womxn, children and men across our communities in SA, to promote community centered and multidisciplinary collaboration where government, the justice system, citizens, professionals and allies are dedicated to ensuring our communities are safe.
