Credit to media for reporting on domestic violence
In the past few months, the trending topics in the media, especially in print, have been focussing on gender-based violence. A good example is Jackline Mwende, who was brutally attacked and had her hands chopped off by her husband. She recently flew back from South Korea, where she was fitted with prosthetic limbs. The media has done well in highlighting and fighting gender violence. This has encouraged more women to come out and tell their stories. This has led to more civil society and human rights organisations offering help.
