A gang rape victim stripped nayked in front of the South African president, Cyril Ramaphosa and others to show them the scars she sustained when she was gang raped.
Ausi Phindile had five surgeries around her abdomen after she was gang raped. She was one of the attendees at the Presidential Gender-Based Violence Summit in South Africa.
While speaking about how women are abused, raped, and murdered by men daily, Phindile stripped naked from the waist down to show President Cyril Ramaphosa that she too had suffered the same incident.
When she pulled her underwear, the audience, especially the men, turned their face away out of respect.
President Cyril Ramaphosa announced at the event that South Africa will launch a national strategic plan to tackle gender-based violence (GBV), after years of lobbying by activists.
