A 17-year-old South African girl has been gang raped then mutilated to death in Bredasdorp, a tiny, rural town about two hours southeast of Cape Town

It's the kind of story that happens too often in South Africa, where a provincial official said that violence against females is systemic. Some 71% of women report having been victims of sexual abuse, the government notes. Statistics show that rape and sexual violence are common in South Africa. A person is raped in South Africa, on average, every four minutes.
