Remembering the young women of Bredasdorp

On Tuesday, 11 August 2015, Rock Girl unveiled our southernmost Safe Spaces bench at the Bredasdorp Magistrates Court, to honor Anene Booysens, Kayde Williams, and Elda Jafta, three girls who were raped and murdered in this rural community in the last two years. The bench is part of an ongoing collaboration with the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development and was sponsored by the SA Sheriff’s Commission and Jenn Langhus. After the unveiling, the girls traveled to the tip of Africa, where they sent out messages of support east, west and north to all those girls whose voices are not heard.  And they looked north, towards the Northern Cape, the destination for our next Road Trip in October 2015.
