WATCH IN HD Hey everyone! In this video, Benedicte, Naivasha and I discuss challenging the common stereotypes Congolese women are portrayed as. We even came across a tweet on twitter where a Congolese individual felt embarrassed to say they were from Congo due to the way the country is mocked on social media. We then go on to discuss another issue raised where an individual wrote a post about Congolese women being messed, and our response to that. To finalise, we talk about the Congolese women dating men from other countries and also the importance of uplifting Congolese men instead of tearing them down. We hope you enjoy!

But for countless women and girls, a particular horror stalks them: rape and its legacy of shame. In Congo, sexual violence has become a weapon of war.
