Sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Violence in the world is a very serious problem for everything it touches and destroys the hearts of everyone who argues otherwise. We have remarked that the world thinks that the DRC is the capitol of sexual violence. We, the Congolese women are going to continue to fight against this violence that ravages whole tracts of the country. With our physical and intellectual strength we have come to change the world and the DRC. Thus said Leymah Gbwee after her visit to the DR Congo on the 23rd of April in Bukavu at the Maman Shujaa center. “They say that the DRC is the rape capitol of the world, but this is what I see. It is the capitol of strong women and solidarity amongst women. Women are more united and strong and together we can establish sustainable peace throughout the world following the direction and pace of globalization.”

Merci beaucoup pour votre poste! Je pense qu'il est important de connaître le pouvoir des femmes. Et il est important de donner la soutien pour les femmes dans leurs solidarités.
