In response to recent violence in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Women for Women International founder and CEO Zainab Salbi will speak to Gwen Ifill tonight about her travels to the DRC, the state of women, and how the culture of rape and violence is invading the country.

Recently over 500 women, girls and babies may have been raped after rebels seized one town in the DRC, the UN reported. This type of violence is just a small example of the daily reality and the fear that the women we serve face daily.
