June Steenkamp has now become a full-time activist against domestic violence following her daughter's murder by Oscar Pistorius. Speaking to a leading media portal she spoke about why she chose to become an activist. "Because we believe there is so much bullying against women. Younger and younger women are getting bullied. That's what we're doing from an education point of view. We're saying, 'Stop domestic violence', is this man controlling you, taking away your car, taking away your freedom. You are asked constantly, 'where are you going, who did you talk to, why did you do this.'," she said.
It will be five years to Reeva's death. Talking about the same, she said, "Yes, February 14, 2013. She was a big part of our life, an amazing person. She loved us, doted on us. We doted on her. In the sadness about missing her, I'm continuing her work. I want to stop other women from dying." On continuing the activism, she said, "Children are being bullied and it is becoming enormous. Bullying is escalating by the day. We're seeking legal remedies also. We're going to work with the government.Boys and men must respect women. Women must teach their sons. We had a media campaign, told the girls to go out and tell the people who abused you. There has to be awareness in your country also."
