Dear Vice Chancellor Phakeng,
Over the past few years, womxn (and sometimes others) at UCT have often fought publicly against the realities of the intensive and complex gender-based violences in South Africa, and on our campus. These realities have been brought home to us, again, in a terrible way in the past two weeks. As the African Gender Institute/Gender Studies, we honour the students who have rallied so fiercely in the past two weeks to fight for Uyinene Mrweytana and against gender-based violence. We also send thanks to you for your tireless energy in the past days, as you have worked with your team to communicate, to honour Uyinene Mrwetyana, and to open spaces for the essential dialogues needed.
