The Board of Directors of the Global Fund for Women, a diverse group of leaders from many nations, including Afghanistan, Costa Rica, Ethiopia, India, Morocco, Nicaragua, Nigeria, the Philippines, Ukraine, and the United States, is deeply concerned about the brutal epidemic of rape and sexual aggression currently being used as a tool of war against women in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Global Fund for Women sees this as an ongoing crime against humanity and we stand in solidarity with other human rights organizations as we call for an end to the violence and immediate action by the international community.
