Shame on Sowetan for degrading women

As a young woman of 24, I found the photograph you published on the front page of the "people's paper" on February 2 totally degrading.

What message are you sending to the male population?

It appears that you think it is a good idea for men to think of women as objects and to have no respect for women.

What happened to the 16 Days of Activism against Women Abuse? Where is the ANC Women's League? Are there no female editors on your newspaper?

We are continually told how many women and children are abused in this country. This type of journalism does nothing to stop this.

Children will see the photograph and think that it is okay to behave like those men. No wonder young boys are raping young girls. They mimic adults, sir. SHAME ON YOU.
