Young women to stage a naked protest
A group of young women will stage a naked protest against gender-based violence in Pretoria on Friday.
Teenage activist Zulaikha Patel will lead a naked protest against gender-based violence on Friday.
Patel became popular when she was the face of the Stop Racism At Pretoria Girls High campaign when she was 13 years old in 2016.
The Pretoria Girls High pupil was at the forefront of a movement against racism at the school as she demanded the right to wear her Afro hairstyle.
Now 16, Patel is fighting for a different cause.
She said: “The idea for the protest came about after a girl who was raped, committed suicide after the trial in the UK.”
