Brutal rape has become commonplace in some parts of the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, an area plagued by warring groups who prey on local people with little fear of retaliation. The consequences for women are harrowing. Many are mutilated after being raped and need extensive surgery. Many also suffer social stigma and rejection. What help do women need following a violent sexual attack? And what can be done to end the horror of such abuse?
