In an exhibition, survivors of conflict-related sexual violence show their healing process and strength


Organised by the Mukwege Foundation, 25 survivors of conflict-related sexual violence contributed to an exhibition in Geneva.

At an extraordinary evening with Dr. Denis Mukwege, the Grand Duchess of Luxembourg and about 230 visitors, they used music and dance, photography, art and poetry to show their healing process and their transformation from victim to actors of change.

Women took to the stage to draw attention to the use of rape as a weapon of war and called for the violence to end.
