CSI: Sonke Gender Justice

Bafana Khumalo | Co-Executive Director with Sonke  

Sonke acknowledges the necessity of addressing various societal influences to instigate lasting changes in gender roles and relations. This involves tackling cultural traditions, governmental policies, legal frameworks, institutional structures, civil society organizations, media, and family dynamics, along with underlying economic, political, and social factors.

To effectively combat gender-based violence and HIV/AIDS, organizations must adopt comprehensive strategies and forge partnerships with diverse stakeholders, including both traditional and non-traditional allies. Sonke collaborates closely with women’s rights groups, social movements, labor unions, government agencies, sports associations, faith-based organizations, media outlets, academic research units, and human rights activists.

Furthermore, Sonke ensures that its initiatives reflect the perspectives and priorities of advocates for the rights of LGBTQ+ communities, individuals living with HIV/AIDS, refugees, migrants, and other marginalized groups. Representation of women, sexual minorities, youth, refugees, migrants, and relevant stakeholders is integral to Sonke’s governance structures.

Recognizing the significance of active citizen participation, Sonke champions engaged and empowered activism that supports and holds governments accountable. As a co-chair of the MenEngage Alliance, Sonke adheres to the Alliance's principles to promote men's positive engagement in gender equality endeavors.
