‘Corrective rape’, the vicious practice of raping lesbians to ‘cure’ their sexuality, is a crisis in South Africa.

But brave South African activists are risking their lives to ensure that recent cases spark change. Their appeal to the Minister of Justice has exploded to over 140,000 signatures, forcing him to respond on national television and agree to meet activists.

If enough of us join in to amplify and escalate this campaign, we could help get urgent action to end 'corrective rape'. Let's ramp it up and call on President Zuma and the Minister of Justice to publicly condemn ‘corrective rape’, criminalise hate crimes, and lead a critical shift against rape and homophobia. Sign the petition now and share it with everyone.
