Anneke Van Woudenberg Of Human Rights Watch On The Crisis In The Congo
On March 18th, 2008 I spoke by phone with Anneke Van Woudenberg, senior researcher for Human Rights Watch, about the war in the Congo, specifically the situation for women.
The people of the Congo are still struggling after one of the deadliest wars in all history. Millions have died and new conflicts threaten peace every day. Perhaps worse than the loss of life is the staggering numbers of human rights violations. Rape is used as a weapon of war and women in Congo are suffering daily under the conditions there. Listen to find out how you can help.
