Pippa Hudson responds to a government tweet in which women were told not to 'allow themselves to become victims' of GBV.

There's been widespread outrage in response to a tweet posted by government in which women were told not to 'allow themselves to become victims' of gender-based violence.

The tweet came in the midst of a flood of social media posts, mainly from women, who spoke of their anger, helplessness and fear at being a woman in South Africa.

Many of those commenting used the hashtag #AmINext?

The surge of comments followed the appearance in court on Monday of a 42-year-old man charged with the rape and murder of UCT student Uyinene Mrewetyana.

Cape Talk host Pippa Hudson added her voice to those criticising the government for its post.

Here's a heads up for you and your cronies Mr President, Uyinene did not ALLOW herself to be raped and killed.

Pippa Hudson, Cape Talk presenter

We do not ALLOW ourselves to be cat-called and be groped.

Pippa Hudson, Cape Talk presenter

As long as you continue putting the burden of the response on our shoulders you are never going to fix this problem.

Pippa Hudson, Cape Talk presenter

The tweet has since been deleted, however, an annotated version is being shared on social media.
