Afternoon Express talks about women abuse in South Africa with two special guests.
In South Africa, 1 in 6 women will fall victim to domestic violence. This is a worrying statistic for a topic seemingly very few women want to talk about. Today on Afternoon Express, we're doing just that and have invited POWA representative Zanele Nkosi and author Phillipa Sklaar who co-wrote the book "When Loving Him Hurts" along with psychologist Sue Hickey, to talk about this pressing issue.
Vic Naidoo, an ambassador for Blow the Whistle will be calling in to speak to our guests about their campaign.
