Ga-Mphahlele, Seleteng

Andrew Rachoene (27) is leading by example to fight Gender-Based Violence and the stigma that women should be the ones that do all the domestic work at home.

He has published his first book called THE UNSUNG HEROINES OF THEN. Andrew breaks down the title of the book as, “UNSUNG refers to the ‘unacknowledged’ while HEROINES is ‘our women, older women’ and THEN represent ‘the time.”

Andrew says most women are unacknowledged for the responsibilities they take to raise their kids alone while father decides not to be part of their lives.

The author from Ga-Mphahlele, Seleteng wrote this book to plead with men to change their ways of living. He wishes men would grasp the idea in the book which emphasizes taking responsibilities and being there physically for their families.

“It can’t be overstated that parents are a single major influence on their children. Its time men understand women. I stand in a box because I am also a hero in this book, I say let’s do what is right. Change starts with one person not financially only. Remember, children learn and live in the environment they are in. They eventually absorb or adopt the situation they are in,” said Andrew.

In a nutshell, the book breaks down the consequence of men neglecting their families and the results of not raising children in a proper and healthy environment.

He says men should start treating women in the right way so they could become good fathers to their children, especially their daughters.

Andrew, who is pursuing his career in law at the University of South Africa (UNISA), wants people to purchase the book so they could learn what is right and wrong in raising or rather treating their children. Parenting should not be one-sided and perfect but learning how to grow in a healthy space is vital.
