Stop Raping Our Greatest Resource: Power to Women and Girls in the Congo
The Women's Funding Network and V-Day invite you to participate in the 2009 Spotlight Campaign -- Stop Raping our Greatest Resource: Power to Women and Girls in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Sexual violence in the eastern DRC continues at epidemic proportions. Rape is used as a weapon of war to torture and humiliate women and girls. This systemic sexual violence and femicide not only destroys women and young girls but also entire families and communities.
Stop Raping Our Greatest Resource, Power to the Women and Girls of The Democratic Republic of Congo is led by the women of Eastern DRC, V-Day and UNICEF on behalf of the United Nations Action Against Sexual Violence in Conflict. The campaign calls for an end to the violence and to impunity for those who commit these atrocities.
