Source: NOBEL WOMEN'S INITIATIVEFrom Congo and Kenya to Burma and Colombia, rape is used as a weapon to humiliate people and tear apart communities. Join us as the International Campaign to Stop Rape & Gender Violence in Conflict launches May 6 with a Week of Action.
The Nobel Women’s Initiative is a proud founding member of the Campaign which is the first ever global collaboration between Nobel Peace Laureates, international advocacy organizations, and groups working at the regional and community levels in conflict areas. The Campaign unites the organizations and individuals that have worked tirelessly at the frontlines to stop rape into a powerful and coordinated effort for change!
We will demand urgent and bold political leadership to prevent rape in conflict, to protect civilians and rape survivors, and call for justice for all-including effective prosecution of those responsible.
During the Week of Action May 6-13 there will be events in countries around the world and you make sure to connect with the Campaign online.
