Quotes & Wishes - A crime against humanity A crime against humanity

Quotes & Wishes - A sign of a problem that is systematic and widespread A sign of a problem that is systematic and widespread

Rape in war is a sign of a problem that is systematic and widespread. Until the day that a woman can have a social value that is greater and deeper than merely sexual or procreative, until a woman is more than simple property, until women are fully represented in all the places where power is divvied up, then rape will always be a problem. And rape will always be a problem in more places than just the Democratic Republic of Congo—or Africa, for that matter.

Quotes & Wishes - One of the most obvious forms of violence against women One of the most obvious forms of violence against women

Rape is one of the most obvious forms of violence against women, but it should also be understood as part of a continuum of violence—one that starts with the violent words that we use against one another.

Quotes & Wishes - Provide practical and concrete support Provide practical and concrete support

I want to see more communities put their words into action and allocate their resources to the survivors [of sexual violence]. This means to not just pass a resolution—but also provide practical and concrete support. Sometimes the international community is busy passing resolutions while women on the ground continue to suffer with no access to resources.

Quotes & Wishes - So we start within ourselves So we start within ourselves

I think there is a socialization that goes where violence becomes acceptable. You have to change that and say, ‘No, that’s not acceptable, rape is not acceptable and neither is any form of violence against women. We must not be ambiguous about violence. The greatest war is fought inside our own hearts, a war of anger and resentment and greed. So we start within ourselves and then with our families and our communities.
(Nobel Peace Laureate)

Quotes & Wishes - Violence starts in the mind Violence starts in the mind

Rape is used in my country as a weapon against those who only want to live in peace, who only want to assert their basic rights... It is used as a weapon by armed forces to intimidate the ethnic nationalities and to divide our country...We must do everything we can to put an end to this. Violence starts in the mind, so we have to start by changing the minds of men and women all over the world.
(Nobel Peace Laureate and democracy leader in Burma)
