Gender violence: ‘no one group to blame’

first_img28 February 2013No single cultural group can or should be blamed for gender-based violence in the country, the Presidency said on Wednesday, after members of South Africa’s Afrikaner community criticised remarks made by a Cabinet minister in an interview with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).“We wish to assure the Afrikaner community and all South Africans that government’s commitment to non-racialism and diversity, as enshrined in the Constitution of the Republic, remains unwavering,” the Presidency said in a statement.“The contribution of Afrikaner males in the fight against gender-based violence, and also generally to the building of a united, caring and prosperous South Africa, is as valuable as that of all South Africans.”The campaign to fight violence against women and children “must be waged by all South Africans, black and white,” the Presidency said, adding: “The nation should focus energies on finding solutions.”Minister apologises, retracts commentSeparately, Minister for Women, Children and People with Disabilities Lulu Xingwana apologised on Wednesday for her comments to ABC, acknowledging that they may have offended some members of the South African community.During a recent interview with ABC on violence in South Africa, stemming from the Oscar Pistorius case, the minister reportedly said: “Young Afrikaner men are brought up in the Calvinist religion believing that they own a woman, they own a child, they own everything and therefore they can take that life because they own it.”Xingwana reportedly added in the interview that “we [black South Africans] have cultural differences as well in our own communities, where we have women who are forced into marriage, and we are dealing with all those issues.”On Wednesday, Xingwana said that, through her comments, she had “sought to convey the message that, as a country we have emerged from a very violent past and that some tend to use cultural and religious beliefs to justify gender inequality and abuse.“I would, accordingly, like to retract these remarks and apologise unconditionally for them. I value national unity and social cohesion, and will continue to work tirelessly towards nation-building.”The Presidency said it had noted and was seeking clarity on the comments attributed to Xingwana.SAinfo reporter and SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

Google Has Changed Political Debate Forever

first_imgWhen I was on the high school debate team, about 15 years ago, using the Internet was considered strange, if not cheating. We used photocopy machines, print magazines and academic journals almost exclusively. That time in the world’s history is now gone forever.When Sarah Palin and Joe Biden debated in front of one of the largest TV audiences in US election history last week, the two candidates might not have been Googling for facts during the debate, but millions of people watching the debate were. Today Google released some information about what kinds of things viewers were searching for as that debate unfolded, minute by minute. It is amazing both that viewers were able to do such a thing, in real time, and that we’re able to watch what people are searching for. The internet in general, and Google in particular, has substantially augmented this important part of public life.The collective search history provides an interesting look at the world’s reaction to what the candidates are saying. Google points out, for example, that one of the hottest searches of the night was “define:maverick.” I wouldn’t mind learning more about the word maverick myself but I’m struck by the evidence that so many people know the search protocol define: and are comfortable using it in a dynamic situation! Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… marshall kirkpatrick Other interesting, popular search queries mentioned in Google’s blog post today included:meaning of theocracywindfall profits taxnucular vs nuclear, nuclear pronunciation, palin nucular, and even nukular“When Senator Biden offered a civics lesson (“Article I of the Constitution defines the role of the vice president of the United States, that’s the Executive Branch”) many people checked, and learned that Article I of the Constitution describes the legislative branch of the U.S. government. The executive branch is described in Article II. Others just searched directly for the role of vice president and vice president duties.”It’s pretty incredible to know that these topics resonated enough with the public that they sought to learn more about them online. That people were even curious enough to ask is encouraging (at least for someone hoping the Democrats will win). Another technology that changed the debate experience was Current’s live video stream with a Twitter overlay, which we wrote about immediately after the first Presidential debate.The candidates may not have used online search while they were debating, but we sure hope they will every day they are in office. It’s changed fundamentally our relationship with politics and we hope that politicians can keep up. Maybe they can even take the lead.
