“As long as I am alive. I will always be standing up, fighting impunity and denouncing my attackers. They gave me the strength to fight, for myself, for my daughters, for Burundian women and for all the women of the world.” Aline Munezero https://t.co/Qp9v7c9XQ1

Rape, when it is systematic and/or strategic, is an international crime, particularly in conflicts. Rape is a crime, a war crime, a crime against humanity and could even be described as an element of genocide. @CelineBardet, President and Founder @NotAWeaponOfWar https://t.co/flh0x3nbsQ

We call on citizens of goodwill – who refuse to allow the bodies of women, children and men to be used as battlefields – to look into the hearts of survivors and open their own to action.
