Network of Wartime Rape Survivors Seeks to End Stigma
Sexual violence is a devastating weapon of war accompanied by fear and misunderstanding. Perpetrators are often soldiers who act with impunity.
“Rapists have to be brought to justice, but how can we do this when the rapists are those in power?” said Mildred, a survivor of conflict-related sexual violence from Zimbabwe.
Mildred is one of the women featured in a new initiative from the foundation of Nobel Peace Prize recipient Dr. Denis Mukwege designed to empower victims and educate the public about rape in conflict zones.
