This study recognizes the significant scholarly attention devoted to understanding gender biases within South Africa’s mining sector, including the prevalence of GBVH in the mines, as well as the fact that in recent years, GBVH against women has gained greater recognition as an urgent human rights issue. By adding further voices of GBVH survivors and their colleagues to this discourse, it seeks to further unpack systemic links between the mining industry and gender-based violence.
