GoodHope FM DJ Tammy B talks to us about her involvement in the Blow the Whistle Campaign.
Imagine if for 16 days there was no rape or child abuse. The 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children campaign challenges South Africans to declare a truce on violence against women and children - and, ultimately, to make it a permanent one.
For its 16th year and with the theme "Count me in: Together moving a non-violent South Africa forward", our country is taking part in the global campaign, which runs from today through to International Human Rights Day on 10 December. With us in the loft to celebrate the start of the campaign is anti-abuse activist, ambassador of Sisters Incorporated and Blow the Whistle Campaign, Good Hope FM DJ, Tammy B.
