South Africa has one of the highest reported rates of gender-based violence in the world. Research shows a significant link between children witnessing and experiencing violence and later perpetration of violence by men on women. 

Similarly, research has shown that poverty increases the risk of intimate partner violence as inequality is a high-risk factor. 

Since a principal factor of violence against women is that children have experienced violence, a strong focus is needed on early year interventions with children to reduce and prevent violence against women in South Africa.
