Blowing the Whistle on Sexual Violence.
When the earthquake struck Haiti in 2010, women and girls across the country found themselves at increased risk of rape. As institutions that offered protection and justice fell around them, the women mobilized within displacement camps to protect women and support survivors. The Campaign is proud to release a new documentary on these bold, innovative women.

Blowing the Whistle on Sexual Violence follows the story of a young rape survivor in Port-au-Prince in her search for support and justice after her attack. It also introduces us to the dynamic women activists of Haiti who have formed a successful movement to create a brighter future for sexual violence survivors.

The women of Haiti are demanding their voices be heard and their rights upheld. This is the inspiring story of how grassroots action can help bring about meaningful change for women on the ground.
