The Gender-Based Violence and Femicide Response Fund says taking a more victim-centered approach is a step in the right direction for South Africa’s fight against gender-based violence.

This, after President Cyril Ramaphosa last week signed into law three new gender-based violence laws which are set to afford victims a lot more protection under the SA legal system.

CEO of the GBVF Response Fund, Lindi Dlamini says the laws are a triumph for the country’s legislative reform.

She says the new laws would also require members of the police force to play a more active role in fighting domestic violence.
