“Wathinta abafazi, Wathin’imbokodo” (you strike a woman, you strike a rock) is a phrase commonly used to describe the strength of a woman. It is used to describe the epitome of strength found in women. Sizani, an 8-year-old girl, uses ‘ukuqoqisa’ – a storytelling form where rocks are used as characters in a story, to tell the story of how she was sexually violated.
