Stop Rape and Sexual Violence as Weapons of War

Half a million Congolese women have been raped and assaulted by multiple military forces over the past decade. In Colombia, women and girls have been repeated targets of violence throughout the country's history of civil conflict. 

Women in Burma – like their sisters in other parts of the world – are being repeatedly brutalized by sexual violence under a repressive regime. 

We need to take a stand against sexual violence in war and conflict. Now.

As the UN General Assembly meets in New York this week, the Global Fund for Women joins its grantee partners and allies in demanding that the United Nations immediately call for a Commission of Inquiry into rape, torture and crimes against humanity in Burma.

A Commission will focus international attention on the Burmese regime, document abuses and expose the crimes against humanity perpetrated by the Burmese government.

Join us in taking action today.
