Social Development Dept to host inaugural Men's Parliament

Written by: Tshegofatso Mathe

JOHANNESBURG - The Social Development Department will be hosting the first men's Parliament in Cape Town on Monday.

This is in response to gender-based violence in the country to mark International Men's day since 1992.

The department says the parliamentary sitting will help mobilise men to talk and hopefully bring a change in behaviour.

Deputy Minister for Social Development Hendrietta Bogopane-Zulu said: “South African men will speak to one another and call on each other for different things, but also commit themselves to what actual actions they are going to take.”
