Zellah Fuphe, business executive and independent non-executive director, and Yumna Seadat, survivor support case officer and counsellor, will be in conversation about our ethical response to the personal, psychosocial and intergenerational impacts of sexual and gender-based violence

Unresolved trauma resulting from sexual and gender-based violence has devastating consequences. It has severe adverse impacts for survivors, their ability to achieve their set objectives and their interpersonal relationships. Sexual and gender-based violence has social and economic consequences and has potential impacts for future generations. Enabling access to mental health support for survivors of sexual and gender-based violence is not only humane, it is also about enlightened self-interest and is the ethical thing to do. It helps build resilient individuals, strong families and communities, all of which are necessary for the good of our country and its development.

The proceeds of this lecture will be donated to the fund to support victims of sexual and gender-based violence, which was established by Zellah Fuphe and is located at the University of Cape Town.
