It’s Time

Domestic Violence and the Justice System in Africa

African Women Join Hands Against Domestic Violence allows an inside glimpse into the lives of African women and girls forced to flee abuse. The video tells how a unique partnership between a Canadian agency and two African organizations is working to combat an epidemic of domestic violence.

From the dangerous streets of post-apartheid Johannesburg, South Africa to the impoverished countryside of Ethiopia where up to 80% of marriages result from abduction and rape, this provocative video provides insights into how domestic violence is intertwined with the history and the social and cultural fabrics of these African countries.

Project was funded by CIDA, the Canadian International Development Agency and the Justice Education Society
