"Stop the Bus! I want to get on:
Lessons from campaigns to end violence against women in South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Ghana"
A report by produced by WOMANKIND Worldwide, Rape Crisis Cape Town, Musasa Project, and the Gender Studies and Human Rights Documentation Centre.
Contributors: Kathleen Dey, Judith Chiyangwa, Netsy Fekade Odoi, Rachel Carter, and Kanwal Ahluwalia; Edited by: Editors 4 Change Ltd

"Strategies to tackle violence against women have evolved over recent years and there is now increased visibility of the problem and greater knowledge and awareness of its causes and consequences. However, huge challenges remain. The scale of this global phenomenon is enormous, but the level of investment in suitable interventions and the political will to tackle the problem remain low compared to other human rights violations. Aside from the devastating impact on the lives of women, their families and communities, the pandemic threatens to undermine efforts to bring about sustainable development.
This report encapsulates the lessons from three organisations working to achieve women’s
rights in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Ghana in their annual campaigns to raise awareness about and contribute to a reduction in violence against women in its many forms. This document offers lessons and guidelines to non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and community-based organisations (CBOs) to encourage community awareness and understanding of gender-based violence, as well as to help those organisations build campaign strategies — and monitor their impact effectively."
