A plea from the DRC

There is a piece over on Progress written by two Congolese women who now live in London and run the It Must Stop campaign. It documents the many horrifying failings in the Democratic Republic of Congo that have existed for decades.

The authors rightly remind us that a whole nation can throw up its arms in horror at the placing of a cat in a bin, while at the same time ignoring the rapes, mutilations and attacks on Congolese women.

You can, and should, read the piece here.
