Two posts this morning in Cape Town newspapers that deliver a shocking look into the state of gender affairs in this country.
Gender and sexuality-related violence seems to be a global issue.
The sterilisation article seems to highlight an issue that is more localized, although I know that birth control and other related (medical, invasive and otherwise) issues will be a fight between women and government for years to come.

Worth reading both of these articles. They both raise questions about the judicial system’s effectiveness at thwarting crimes and then its ability to maintain control over judicial proceedings, including handling and transport of prisoners.
