UCT Libraries staff gathered together to remember UCT student Uyinene Mrwetyana and all those affected daily by gender-based violence in our society.

Please note that Special Collections will be closing at 15:30 on Friday, 30 August, and re-opening at 9:00 on Saturday, 31 August, due to planned electrical maintenance.
We apologise for any inconvenience
