This pledge coincides with the upcoming National Men’s Rally on gender-based violence set to take place on Saturday, 24 August in Johannesburg. Dubbed “Not In My Name”, the gathering is aimed at bringing together all men in the fight against the scourge of gender-violence in all its different forms and shapes.
