The Mukwege Foundation is pleased to announce our partnership with the film Rising Silence and director Leesa Gazi. They were, in fact, four sisters who were kept imprisoned in a rape camp during the war. Right after the war ended, the youngest sister Budhi died of internal haemorrhage. During the filming, they wished to have a prayer in honour of her memories. Budhi died in 1972, and the three sisters could finally arrange a prayer for her in 2015. It took 43 years for them to arrange this. ©Khan Rising Silence tells the story of the Birangona women, survivors of rape and sexual slavery in the Liberation War of Bangladesh of 1971.

"Women are creative, better at negotiating and their place at the peace negotiation table will make for a more sustainable settlement. Yet, they demand from us more than what is asked of the men around the table. Our qualifications are questioned. Whereas different religious and ethnic groups have to be represented when peace is negotiated, women do not, although we constitute 50 per cent of the population. Representation of women is a human rights issue." Mariam Jalabi is a Syrian feminist and activist. She is a member of the Syrian opposition High Negotiation Committee's Women's Advisory Committee. She work to ensure that women are participating in all aspects of the political processes in Syria. Mariam points out that the political culture and international policy-making are patriarchal, that making progress is difficult, and that this is not a problem specific to Syria as women are marginalised whenever true democracy, human rights and pluralism are side-lined.

"Respecting and defending the basic rights of human beings is the best I could do to respect also myself and to defend my loved ones. Defend one, defend all.

"The first case I worked on was Nadia- a 10-year-old survivor of gang rape forced to compromise with her attackers. Since then I have believed in the power of the law to speak out on behalf of women and girls forced to stay silent by oppressive patriarchal structures. I will continue my fight for women's access to justice until no more survivors of sexual violence have to watch their attackers escape retribution." Zainab Malik is a human rights lawyer and activist from Pakistan. She has represented survivors of domestic violence, sexual violence, custodial torture and prisoners on death row. Zainab also conducts policy advocacy to raise awareness about human rights violations and pushes for gender-sensitive reforms of laws and procedures.

« Yazidi survivors of sexual violence, many as old as 8 years old, who have been in ISIS captivity for several years are deeply traumatized when freed. They receive no help and support, living in tents in refugee camps. Many of them cannot be reunited with their family members as these have been transferred to several different countries while others are still missing. We should do everything in our power to support these survivors and not expose them to another trauma that involves splitting the family. Countries that receive Yazidis must unite and support entire families and not divide them. » -Najlaa, Yazidi survivor of sexual violence #standwithsurvivors

“Survivors want recognition and respect to rebuild their dignity. They should have been offered an apology prior to their persecutors receiving forgiveness. We should persevere in our determination to employ prosecution, because there is no peace without justice. And justice begins with truth. Therefore, survivors' stories should be told and heard." Since the outbreak of the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) in 1992, Amra has been involved in humanitarian and trauma work as a coordinator of many international psychosocial, training and research projects. She has over 20 years of clinical work experience. In addition, she is a devoted human rights and peace-building activist. In March 2015, Amra won the Gender Equality Award 2014 from the Gender Equality Commission of the House of Representatives of the Parliamentary Assembly of BiH and Office for Security and Co-operation in Europe. She initiated and co-founded two survivors’ associations, “Our Voice” and “Forgotten Children of War.” She now works at Plava Poliklinika Tuzla, BiH.

“We fight against impunity by denouncing the aggressors in case so that the gendarmerie and court may know. Survivors often do not want to denounce abusers for fear of being exposed by pressure from parents and community because of socio-cultural constraints. Here in Mali for the moment there is only one proposed law which has not yet been adopted by the National Assembly. Justice must be done, if not the survivors suffer without apology or compensation.” -Assetou is a member of SEMA and has been the director of social action at the National Institute for the Training of Social Workers since 2014.
