What is keeping rape in our society is silence. The silence [of women] is really a strong tool of rapists, so they can go on destroying girls and women.
If she stays in silence, she can be raped again and again. And she can’t protect others.
One of the implications of the silence concerning these sexual atrocities, however, is that there are extremely scarce facts to assess or even estimate the scale of the problem. It is a war crime that is largely undocumented.
Another major implication of the silence is that the perpetrators are never brought to justice, causing deep psychological damage to the victims, who must sometimes continue to live alongside their abusers.
~ Dr Denis Mukwege b.1955 Congo Gynecologist and Pentecostal Pastor
In 2018, Mukwege and Nadia Murad were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for “their efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict”.
