Welcome

WOMAN AGAINST RAPE (WAR) encourages all South Africans to exercise their rights by teaching them that their bodies and spirits are sacred. No other person may violate these rights in any manner. In the event of violation or abuse, all South African victims have a right to be heard and counseled through empathetic and skilled care. WAR is dedicated to providing the knowledge of prevention and the necessary steps to work through a traumatic event.  We'd like to encourage all persons to exercise their rights by teaching them that their bodies and spirits are sacred and no-one may violate these rights in any manner. If this does happen, to know that there is someone who is prepared to listen and help by offering them assistance.
