This study has sought to understand the approach of the South African government for the prevention and elimination of Gender Based Violence (GBV). In seeking to do so, it hopes to contribute to the scholarship on gender equality and the realisation of human rights for women in South Africa. It seeks to explore whether a right based approach has been implemented by the State when tackling GVB. By doing so, it hopes to build a case for the need of a rights based approach in State interventions. In particular, it will focus on interventions by the State through legislative polices and action plans.
