What does POWA mean?
- POWA, People Opposing Women Abuse, is a South African NGO established in 1979 which undertakes campaigns, projects and research related to violence against women in Africa. POWA was the first organisation in South Africa to establish a shelter for abused women in 1981. In 1999, at the time of the Tuli elephant cruelty case, POWA ran a controversial TV advertisement claiming that many people "care more for abused animals than for abused women".
