Women's issues have always been on the agenda at The Daily Vox, but this month the team of journalists at the South African news organisation are putting a particular focus on stories about sexual violence on public transport.

Sexual abuse and violence are a serious problem in the country, so after a series of incidents including rape and death taking place over the last three months, The Daily Vox chose to run stories about this issue to raise awareness and help look for solutions.

The Daily Vox has partnered with Soul City, a social justice organisation that focuses on young women and girls and the communities they live in, and will be producing Instagram stories, Facebook Lives, written features, videos and podcasts to cover the issues that this topic raises.

This week's guests are:

  • Benazir Cassim, acting managing editor, The Daily Vox

  • Faranaaz Parker, writing coach, The Daily Vox
