17 October - Gender - Gender activist calls for female examiners

In today's show, we heard from Lucinda Evans - Director of Philisa Abafazi Bethu. We were talking about her concerns regarding the lack of female examiners and counsellors for rape survivors at Victoria Hospital. Evans believes women should have a say about who examines them especially rape survivors. She also pointed out that there are no trained counsellors at Victoria Hospital but said it’s not the case at other centres such as Khayelitsha Hospital. We also heard from Sithembiso Magubane - District Health Communications officer. For further information you can contact Philisa Abafazi Bethu on (021) 701 4717 or visit www.philisaabafazi.org
