A CAMPAIGN CALL FROM THE INTERNATIONAL CAMPAIGN TO STOP RAPE AND GENDER VIOLENCE IN CONFLICT

Because we envision a world without war, rape and gender violence where women and men are equal;

Because rape and gender violence destroy individuals and families, entire communities and the fabric of society;

Because rape and gender violence have increasingly become a deliberate tactic of terror in war and other conflict situations.

Because in recent years alone, massive numbers of women – and sometimes men and boys - have sufferednot only the physical trauma of rape and gender violence in war and other conflict situations, but also the shame and stigma that often leaves survivors suffering in silence;

Because perpetrators of rape and gender violence go unpunished and impunity is the order of the day;

Because national, regional and international commitments to end rape and gender violence in war and other conflict situations are either seriously inadequate or are not being enforced; and

Because women and girls, men and boys across the world demand and expect justice.

We call for:

Powerful and urgent leadership on the local, national, regional and international levels to prevent and stop rape and gender violence in war and conflict situations;

A dramatic increase in resources for prevention and protection and for psychosocial and physical healing for survivors, their families and communities including concerted efforts to end stigma of survivors;

Justice for victims, including prosecution of perpetrators at national, regional and international levels, and comprehensive reparation for survivors..."
