"I have just returned from hell....How do I tell you of girls as young as nine raped by gangs of soldiers, of women whose insides were blown apart by rifle blasts and whose bodies now leak uncontrollable streams of urine and feces?" - Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologues and Commissioner of the Women's Commission, in an article for Glamour magazine MORE.
"There is no precedent for the insensate brutality of the war on women in the Congo.
New York , NY, October 17, 2007- The eastern region of the Democratic Republic of Congo has been ravaged by conflict for 10 years and is escalating into violence yet again. Women and girls are being systematically targeted on a blood-chilling scale never before seen.
Aiming to improve international and local capacities
to address gender-based violence in refugee, internally displaced, and
post-conflict settings, this report provides a narrative account of some
of the major issues.
Composed of twelve country profiles, three each for Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America, information is provided on the context in which incidents and programming occur, the nature and prevalence of gender-based violence, the activities underway, and gaps in those activities that contribute to its perpetuation.
