From Women’s Day, 8 March, the Rape Crisis Cape Town Trust is calling on all people living in South Africa to support rape survivors who speak out. Speaking out can take various forms: a private disclosure to loved ones, speaking to a counsellor, reporting the rape to officials or speaking out publicly. The aim of the campaign is to break the silence in order to challenge our high rape rates.
This month we are launching a series of powerful portraits of rape survivors who bravely came forward to pose for Don’t Hide, Speak Out. The offer to take these portraits came from international photographer Sandro Baebler who did this without charging the organisation. He also managed to get a team of seven other companies and individuals to support the campaign with studio time, makeup, design and printing as well as transport costs for all the participants.
