Apartheid recharted the South African landscape through its control and restructuring of place and space. The separation of races through the Group Areas Act divided populations and created pockets of extreme wealth adjacent to areas marked by overpopulation, poverty, and structural violence. While apartheid laws have been repealed for decades, inequality continues to structure the daily lived experiences of South Africans. This chapter examines a range of different communities in order to map the networks, institutional actors, and resources that address gender-based violence in the new South African geography. Efforts to end gender-based violence appear to be most successful when they are embedded in initiatives to strengthen community networks that address the larger structures of inequality and abuse.
