One in every four women in South Africa is in an abusive relationship. Every six days, a woman in South Africa is murdered by her partner. Every 25 seconds, a woman or girl is raped in South Africa. These shocking statistics are not foreign to South Africans. This exhibition aims to create awareness of the escalation and seriousness of gender-based and sexual violence against women – and the girl child in particular. Enough is Enough zooms in on the individual stories of women and their personal experiences with abuse through the “1000 Women, 1 Voice” campaign. It invites people to engage with some of the real people behind these statistics, and challenges the viewer to say, “Enough is Enough!”.
