“What would you do if there were no men on earth for 24 hours?”

As a thought experiment, a user on the TikTok social media platform posed this question to women around the world, and the simplicity of the responses was heartbreaking.

Watch John Steenhuisen’s video below to see why.

As people around the world embark on 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, we call on South African men (many of whom are good) to join DA Leader John Steenhuisen in committing to ending gender-based violence in our country.

It’s a pledge to which we must recommit ourselves each and every day, for the women of our country, and for the basic freedoms of which they are robbed by fear of harassment, violence, and rape (which are nowhere more evident than in South Africa).

It is these basic freedoms that we as the DA fight to uphold as a liberal party.
