Aired: 1/24/2013 | 0:09:47 | Clip
This film module portrays Congolese refugee Rose Mapendo's activism on the behalf of women and refugees. We see her gradually find her voice and share her story publicly to raise awareness about rape as a weapon of war, and the need to support refugees as they rebuild their lives. It also shows her return to the DRC to meet with women there and discuss strategies for their empowerment.
