woman

International woman's day 2009. What do we do when the scope of violence against women is so unimaginable, so extreme and enormous, that it is beyond our vision? Beyond our realm of thinking?

How is it possible that we live in a world where one doctor has treated 25,000 victims of rape for mutilation and suffering?

For those of us who are safe from the world of the Congo, who are unable to go there, to physically help the thousands of women who are victims of rape as a tactic of war, we read about it. We learn about it. We bear witness to it. So that we can help in other ways. So that we can stop it from ever happening in other places, in future wars. To make rape a tactic of war IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. ANYWHERE.
DRC

Women carrying heavy loads of produce to market in the Democratic Republic of Congo, adding a child to the load. According to the UN, women work two-thirds of the world’s working hours and produce half of the world’s food, yet earn just ten percent of the world’s income.

Deconstructing Sexual Violence in Congo

The media coverage of Democratic Republic of Congo is awash with stories of horrific rape. The core issue of sexual violence is not limited to Congo (it is estimated that 1 in 4 American college women have been raped), but the extent to which it has occurred in DRC is unprecedented and must be examined through the conditions created by internal and external actors who have constructed an environment that enables sexual violence to flourish. To change these conditions is to diminish sexual violence.
