The Nobel Women's Initiative, in collaboration with the International Campaign to Stop Rape & Gender Violence in Conflict, is pleased to present a new report, Survivors Speak Out: Sexual Violence in Sudan.

Highlighting the testimonies of sexual violence survivors from across Sudan—and the grassroots women's groups who face immense risk to support them—the report provides a picture of the crisis women across Sudan face everyday. Rape is used as a weapon to destroy communities and to suppress political opposition and women live in a system where they are punished for being raped.

The report will launch online Friday, December 6 at 9:00am EST, with an event at the Dutch Embassy in Canada to mark the occasion.

An advanced copy of the Survivors Speak Out: Sexual Violence in Sudan can be viewed online or by downloading it from page.
