Abstract [en]

South Africa has some of the highest sexual violence data outside of any war context. Every third South African woman has been sexually assaulted before the age of 18, with a third of the country’s men having perpetrated rape at least once. As some scholars argue for violence and dehumanizing patterns to be embedded in the structures of contemporary South Africa, due to the country’s colonial past, the present study critically examines the correlation between the structures of domination in Apartheid South Africa, a seemingly flawed prosecution system, and the high prevalence of sexual violence on women and young girls in the country’s contemporary context. By using the patriarchy, intersectionality, and ontological violence as its main analytical frameworks, this paper concludes that the power structures experienced in a customary patriarchal society today show parallels to the power structures experienced during the Apartheid era, on grounds of its dehumanizing nature. Furthermore, the paper concludes that inconsistent justice proceedings equally contribute to the country’s high sexual violence statistics.
