The ANC Women's League in KwaZulu-Natal yesterday said the Congress of the People was a dud without policies.

"We do not talk about a party that does not even exist," ANCWL provincial chairman Lungi Gcabashe said at the launch of the 16 Days of Activism Against Violence Against Women and Children in Durban.

" For a party to be recognised it should be registered with the independent electoral commission , declare its policies publicly and be formally launched."

Gcabashe said though significant strides had been made in the fight against gender-based violence several challenges remained.

Gcabashe urged churches, community-based organisations and NGOs to play a meaningful role in the fight against gender violence. She said they should not wait to act until the campaign kicked off every year.

Fikile Masiko, a member of the Young Women's Forum, which is part of the Youth Commission, said it was imperative for young women to take part in campaigns because they bore the brunt of the scourge of violence.

Masiko said they would soon launch a signature campaign to tackle the issue of women abuse.
