During the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children campaign, 1st for Women Insurance is shining a light on women abuse with their #16DaysOfLight campaign. The campaign entails projecting 15 haunting tributes to victims of brutal murders, rapes and femicides on the actual locations of these crimes.
Victims include Zanele Khumalo (raped and strangled in Garsfontein), Nomsa Hilda Mbuyisa (shot in Soweto), Hannah Cornelius (raped and murdered near Stellenbosch), Clarissa Lindoor (murdered in Stellenbosch), Courtney Pieters (raped and murdered, her body found in Epping Industria, Cape Town) and Janika Mello (raped and murdered in Heinz Park, Cape Town), among others.
On the 16th Day, 10 December 2019, the full length compilation video of all 15 tributes combined, will be projected onto the side of a well-known landmark in Johannesburg. The tribute will also be broadcast live on social media.
