A recent survey by financial technology company CompariSure has revealed that gender-based violence may be even more severe than current observations by many organisations.
The survey was conducted over a period of two months with 531 respondents and follows on the heels of the release of the third-quarter crime statistics, which revealed a 5% increase in reported sexual offences.
The survey revealed that 52% of respondents said that they currently feel anxious and nervous around their partners, while 40% of women aged between 25 and 35 said they were being isolated from their families by a partner, and 32% have been threatened with harm by their partner.
Another 25% said they were afraid of voicing a different opinion to their partner and that their partners threaten to kill themselves if they should leave them, while 15% of respondents said they are hiding bruises, cuts and scratches.
Provincial National Shelter Movement member Bernadine Bachar says South Africa was characterised by significant under-reporting when it came to GBV, particularly sexual assault.
Bachar says the recently released statistics were not reflective of the reality that was faced by women in South Africa at present.

LAWYERS have warned that the Legal Practice Council’s plans to transform their profession with the draft legal sector code, which is presently up for discussion, contains clauses that could potentially cripple legal practices.
Their biggest concern is the significantly increased number of pro bono hours lawyers must work annually, to be in good standing with the council.
Previously, attorneys and advocates were required to do 24 mandatory hours of pro bono service per annum but the council’s draft code has now suggested 200 hours.
Some lawyers complained that a typical month comprised around 22 working days, therefore, the council’s call to do free duty on three of those days is not practical or economically sustainable.
They also raised that pro bono stipulations were more taxing on smaller practices, including the council’s other proposed adjustments to Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment requirements that governed their operations.
Practitioners have until March 15 to voice their concerns.
As a regulatory body, the Legal Practice Council has jurisdiction over legal practitioners, including candidate practitioners, to ensure they enhance and maintain the integrity and status of the profession.

Electronic Toll Collections, which is responsible for the management and collection of e-tolls in South Africa, and its Austrian-based owner Kapsch TrafficCom have been implicated in alleged corruption and bribery involving millions of rand in two contracts.
Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse CEO Wayne Duvenage says these latest revelations, along with others that Outa has raised regarding the ETC tender and contract values and the inflated Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project construction costs, warrant the introduction of an independent inquiry on the e-toll matter.
Outa believes the questionable payments by ETC to a contractor and indications that Kapsch allegedly paid a significant bribe to secure a Zambian contract raise questions about the awarding of the e-tolls build-operate-maintain contract to ETC by the SA National Roads Agency in 2009.

It involves talking about how much each person earns, the desire to either combine resources or keep them separate, as well as spending habits.
Research has shown the more money that is spent the wedding ceremony and ring, the shorter the marriage
The reasons for these relationships remain unclear but The likelihood of divorce may increase because of wedding-related debt stress or because of the likelihood that those who spend less happen to be a better match for one another

A double standard is the application of different sets of principles for situations that are, in principle, the same.
It is often used to describe treatment whereby one group is given more latitude than another.
Double standards arise as the result of stereotypes, or the oversimplified ideas held about a certain type of person.
Though there is no exhaustive list of who is at risk for being stereotyped, common factors that may lead someone to have a different set of expectations than others include but are not limited to race, religion, gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, education level and sexual orientation.
In the context of heterosexual relationships, the sexual double standard leads to a more negative assessment of women than men when they exhibit the same sexual behavior.
Using double standards to judge job applicants can prevent the selection of qualified candidates who possess disadvantaged status characteristics.
Experimental studies have shown that when assessors compare equally qualified women and men for jobs, the men are more likely to be recommended for hiring.

School governing bodies are an integral part of the education system.
This statutory constituted body's role is central to a successful education system.
School governing bodies as custodians of democracy in our schools must also mirror the diverse cultures of communities in which the schools belong.
They must provide a structure for public accountability and provide a platform for parents to influence the direction that the school takes in educating children in a diverse and democratic country.
