CSA launches Black Day campaign in fight against femicide - Sports Leo

Cricket South Africa (CSA) added its voice and commitment to the fight against femicide and violence against women when it launched its Black Day campaign at the Kingsmead Stadium on Friday.

The focus point of the campaign will be the T20 International match between South Africa and Australia to be played at Kingsmead on March 22 when both teams will wear black outfits in line with the overall theme.

“As Cricket South Africa we are painfully aware that our country is afflicted by rising numbers of femicide and violent crimes against women,” said CSA Acting Chief Executive Jacques Faul.

“CSA wishes to support the fight against this injustice and to use its voice to draw attention to the prevention of gender-based violence by hosting a marquee match for women’s cricket, an event similar in nature to our Standard Bank Proteas Pink ODI and the Pink Sydney Test.

“CSA has termed the event Black Day in line with the colour of the national campaign against gender-based violence as supported by our Government.

“CSA calls on all to assist us in our endeavour to take a firm stand against this ill that threatens the well-being of our nation and to pledge support of CSA’s Black Day Initiative.

“It is highly appropriate that the match should take place in the month when we celebrate International Women’s Day which coincides with the final of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia.”

All proceeds from this initiative will go to a soon-to-be-identified safe house for women, looking after the needs of those with little or no means to escape their abusive circumstances.
