"Rethink the coding that you send the boy child in your life" #MenAreTrash

Following the death of Karabo Mokoena, who was allegedly killed by her boyfriend, women took to Twitter to express how exhausted they are with abuse, misogyny and the killing of women.

These are women who say they are tired of constantly living in a state of fear when they walk in the streets.

The conversation #MenAreTrash raises issues that women are faced with and the battles they have to fight every day.

Women have shared horrible, shocking and heart-breaking experiences they have had with men.
