Stop Abuse of Women

Gender-based violence and abuse of women is a national crisis in South Africa. Women, especially in mining communities, are often disempowered. DRDGOLD supports the call by the Minerals Council South Africa (MCSA) to stop the abuse of women in mining communities and our country as a whole.

The Minerals Council’s initiative launched on 8 March 2020 in support of International Women’s Day.

The subject of abuse is difficult for victims to raise, and often there is also a lack of understanding of what constitutes unacceptable behaviour by both men and women. Abuse can range from coercion to verbal harassment and physical violence.

Abuse of women is often unreported or unresolved. By creating effective mechanisms for safe and sensitive reporting, we can help give victims a voice. We want to encourage men and women to recognise abuse and to stand up against abusive behaviour.

Some 20% of DRDGOLD’s workforce is comprised of women. This is a far higher percentage than that of any other South African mining company, and therefore our duty to ensure the physical and emotional safety of all women is all the more a priority for us.
