Take the Pledge to Stop Rape and Gender Violence in Conflict
"The time for the world to act is NOW against this deadly plague, which began against women, but has now metastasized to the minds of our sons."
—Congoleezza, World Pulse Correspondent (DRC)
Nobel women laureates, international advocacy organizations, and grassroots women’s groups working in conflict areas around the world have come together to launch the International Campaign to Stop Rape & Gender Violence in Conflict, uniting organizations and individuals into a powerful and coordinated effort for change.
The campaign has identified four focus countries where immediate action is needed and where united efforts can make the biggest impact in the shortest amount of time: the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Colombia, and Burma.
