CAPE TOWN - The Western Cape Community Safety Department says women's safety should be a priority all throughout the year.

The department concluded a series of Women's Month celebratory events along the West Coast on Friday.

The visits were to encourage the protection of women and pledge men's responsibility in the fight against domestic violence.

During one visit to Paternoster, Community Safety MEC Dan Plato also handed over a safety kiosk in the area.

The department's Ewald Botha says, "Mr Plato thereafter also attended one of the final Women's Month events which is one of the events Mr Plato undertook across the province to different communities celebrating women from local areas, highlighting women's safety and identifying men's responsibility in identifying women's safety."
