Sexual Violence in Conflict

June 19th is the International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict.

Violence against women, there is really more than we think.

Women are often targeted in conflict.

To get out of this is so much more difficult than you think.

Even for those who succeed, there are also nightmares at night and you have to relearn how to control your body. You have no more esteem for you. These men, these soldiers are soul killers. These women will never be like they were before.
