Gender Based and Family Violence Workshop
Oudtshoorn, 17 October 2014

The Rural Development Support Program, an associate body of the SACBC,  presented a gender based and family violence workshop to clergy and lay representatives of the Diocese of Oudtshoorn from 14-16 October 2014. The workshop took place at Step-a Side , George. Bishop Francisco de Goeveia was also in attendance for part of the workshop.

Contemporary research and statistics on Gender-based and family violence were presented to participants, setting the scene for the remainder of the interactive workshop. Participants were made aware of the fact that South Africa has the highest occurrence of Gender based and family violence incidents in the world. As much as 80% of these occur in rural areas. Women and children are most often direct or indirect victims of gender based and family violence. The possible causes, symptoms, dynamics and effects of gender based violence took up much of the discussion. These include social constructs of masculinity and femininity, stereotyping and modeling.

Today I am at the Capuchin Poor Clare Convent, Swellendam, where together with Fr. Sean Cahill OFM Cap I have just witnessed the election of the abbess and her two councillors. In the centre of the photos is the abbess Sister Maria de los Angeles Moreno. On the left is the vicaress / first councillor Sister Irma Guzman and on the right is the second councillor Sister Miriam Velazquez. I am staying at their retreat centre this weekend as tomorrow I meet with 23 confirmation candidates from Swellendam, Montagu and Heidelberg who will be confirmed at St. Patrick's, Swellendam on Sunday.
