Siya Kolisi has joined many South African personalities to condemn the violence against women in the country.
The Springboks captain shared a photo of himself with his wife, Rachel, and revealed his heart is heavy following past and recent attacks on the female gender.
His post was captioned:
"My heart has been really heavy. Not only with the recent stories of women in SA being massacred, but knowing this has been the case for years. So much so that not every case even makes it to the news."
"I never took the opportunity to join the GBV marches last year, but I’d like to use my voice now, and say, enough is enough."
"The attack on women starts long before physical violence, it’s in our conversations with our fellow men, how we treat women in our own lives and how we treat and perceive women we don’t know."
"I choose to respect, protect and support. And hear the women in and outside my environment. I haven’t always gotten it right and I’ve messed up a lot of times, but I’ve chosen to be better. I’ve got other good men holding me accountable for my actions."
"Let’s be the generation of men to break this attack on women."
